Katrina Donations


On the off-chance you haven’t seen this elsewhere, Glenn Reynolds has a master list of charities and relief agencies that are helping the victims of Hurricane Katrina, if you would like to donate.

As a side note, I’ve been told that, when giving to an organization like the American Red Cross, it’s often better to make the donation out to their “National Disaster Relief Fund” rather than the “Hurricane 2005 Relief,” simply because ARC is required to spend the latter fund entirely on hurricanes, and if they get an overflow of donations for Katrina—as seems possible—they can’t use the surplus for other, lesser-noticed disasters. Usually these organizations know best where to spend their funds, so I prefer to give them the flexibility, although obviously any sort of donation helps a great deal.

FACT:

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn't fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation today so we can keep on doing the type of journalism 2019 demands.
