ABA Foundation Disaster Relief Program 

Disasters can devastate communities and affect thousands of individuals in a matter of minutes—and quickly providing relief is critical to helping communities recover. ABA Foundation’s new Disaster Relief Program—which was enacted after a vote by ABA member banks—supports state bankers associations in raising funds for those in need. After a presidentially declared disaster, state associations can designate a specific 501(c)(3) organization they wish to help, and ABA Foundation will solicit donations nationwide on behalf of the state bankers association. For more about the program visit aba.com/relief (state association login access required). For more information, contact disasterrelief@aba.com
