2020 Disaster Relief - Gulf Coast Hurricanes Fund


The US Gulf Coast and Southeastern states have been impacted by three major hurricanes in the span of six weeks. Hurricane Laura made landfall near Cameron, LA on August 27 as a Category 4 with winds up to 150 mph, the strongest on record to hit this region; Hurricane Sally made landfall near Gulf Shores, AL on September 16 as a Category 2, bringing over 30 inches of rainfall in some areas; and Hurricane Delta came ashore on October 9 as a Category 2 less than 15 miles from where Laura made landfall, re-inundating communities that were still in the midst of cleanup. These storms caused extensive damage across several southeastern states and Puerto Rico, left hundreds of thousands without power and to date have resulted in at least 40 fatalities in the US. This disaster relief campaign will support the American Red Cross, Americares, Second Harvest of Greater New Orleans and Acadiana, Team Rubicon, and World Central Kitchen. The Cisco Foundation will match eligible donations up to $10,000 per employee. Donations will not be counted toward employees' annual $25,000 match limit.

US employees who make a credit card donation will receive a receipt for tax deductibility for the portion of the donation contributed to US organizations.
