2022 Disaster Relief - Hurricane Ian Fund

About

Hurricane Ian made landfall in southwestern Florida as a powerful Category 4 storm, with 150mph winds and record-breaking storm surges causing catastrophic damage. At least 21 people have died, thousands are unaccounted for, and homes, businesses and infrastructure have been devastated. Over 2 million people lost power, and early estimates put homes damaged as 60% or more in some areas. After weakening, Ian is re-intensifying and is expected to further impact the South and North Carolina over the next few days. Cisco Foundation has launched a $1M Hurricane Ian disaster campaign and donations will be matched up to $10,000 per employee. Campaign donations will not be counted toward employees' annual $25,000 match limit. Note on Tax Deductibility: This fund includes U.S.- based organizations. U.S. employees who make a credit card donation will receive a receipt for tax deductibility for the portion of the donation contributed to these organizations. Employees outside the U.S. will not be able to receive a receipt for tax deductibility for credit card donations to organizations in this fund.

Additionally, they are assessing mental health / psychosocial support needs and distributing supplies prepositioned prior to landfall, including tarps, generators, solar lamps, hygiene kits and drinking water.
