Nepal Earthquake Disaster Response and Recovery Fund
In response to the powerful earthquake in Nepal on April 25, Bright Funds has established the Nepal Earthquake Disaster Response and Recovery Fund, comprised of pre-vetted nonprofits providing disaster response in Nepal. Through a single tax deductible donation to the Fund, you can help multiple organizations' initiatives to provide short-term and long-term response and recovery.
Our Fund approach is informed by expert and local recommendations, based on up to date information from disaster philanthropy and nongovernmental organization networks. The Fund's strategy is similarly dynamic and responsive: as information on local communities needs becomes available, we will update the organizations in this Fund, directing donations towards specific organizations doing work in the areas most affected.
We have initially selected organizations that are on the ground assisting with immediate relief needs, including rescue efforts, medical assistance, and providing access to clean water, food and shelter. Our approach is primarily informed by the Center for Disaster Philanthropy.
