Donate Today to Help Victims of Matthew

The Outer Banks Community Foundation is now accepting donations to the Disaster Relief Fund to support relief and recovery efforts after Hurricane Matthew.


All contributions are tax-deductible, and 100% of all donations will be used to directly assist individuals and families in Dare County.

Although relief crews are just beginning to assess community needs, flooding and damage appear to be widespread. As with all storms, the Community Foundation is collecting monetary donations, while our partners at Interfaith Community Outreach will work directly with affected individuals and families to distribute relief funds to those in need.

Donations can be made online at here, or can be mailed to the Outer Banks Community Foundation at 13 Skyline Road, Southern Shores, NC 27949. Please write “Disaster Relief” in the memo line of your check.
