The Booz Allen Foundation is committed to providing assistance to support nonprofit organizations as they address disaster response and recovery efforts in their local communities. Beyond financial support, the Foundation may serve as a trusted resource for knowledge, expertise, and technology to ensure local communities are better prepared to address disaster and resiliency needs.
Update April 2019
In 2018, regions of the United States were ravaged by Hurricanes Florence and Michael. The Booz Allen Hamilton community responded in numerous ways, including an employee campaign to support response and recovery activities in communities impacted by the disasters.
All donations designated to the Booz Allen Foundation were directed locally in support of nonprofits that are deeply rooted and committed to serving their local community, with established records of direct service and the organizational capacity to effectively leverage the Foundation’s donation, and in good standing with the IRS. In identifying organizations to support, input was provided by Booz Allen employees, as well as by other organizations and nonprofit leaders actively engaged in disaster response and recovery efforts. Final decisions on the Booz Allen Foundation donations were made by the Foundation’s Board of Directors.
The Booz Allen Foundation Board approved donations to ten organizations whose areas of direct service include food, shelter and rebuilding, health, disaster case management, and classroom educational resources. Funds were distributed in two waves, allowing time for organizations to better understand their longer-term disaster recovery needs. Organizations receiving donations were:
- Fayetteville Area Habitat for Humanity
- Crystal Coast Habitat for Humanity
- Food Bank for Central and Eastern North Carolina
- Second Harvest Food Bank Southeast North Carolina
- Life Management Center of Northwest Florida
- Habitat for Humanity of Bay County
- Feeding the Gulf Coast
- Gulf Coast Children’s Advocacy Center
- Boys & Girls Club of Bay County
- DonorsChoose.org with funds directed to 16 individual classrooms in impacted communities
With the financial support from the Booz Allen Foundation, coupled with the outpouring of donations from individuals and organizations, these local nonprofits continue to work tirelessly to address the critical needs of the individuals, families, and communities they serve.
