Field of Interest
  Donate Abilene Disaster Relief Fund
The Abilene Disaster Relief Fund is a join effort of the Community Foundation of Abilene and the United Way of Abilene. Both organizations are working in coordination with the Big Country Volunteer Organizations Active in Disaster (VOAD) to help determine where funds and assistance are needed. The fund is managed by CFA, and donations to this fund will be used to assist victims of the damage caused by the tornado that came through parts of Abilene on the morning of May 18th. Funds will be distributed to the nonprofit organizations, churches, and the City of Abilene that will be providing assistance and resources to those victims.
