Baltimore, MD (PRWEB) May 01, 2014
In conjunction with their official launch on Tuesday, The National Disaster Relief Foundation announced today they are now accepting online contributions from the public to support their efforts to help disaster victims.
As a grassroots organization, supported entirely by donations from the public, the National Disaster Relief Foundation is the only nationwide charity of its kind. The Foundation’s Commitment to Donors promises that ninety percent of every donated dollar will be given directly to disaster victims to help pay for items that insurance providers, FEMA or other organizations do not cover.
“Our Foundation will demonstrate that the thousand-year-old approach to charity has not been lost in America", said Foundation President Clinton Pipkin. "From our perspective, this is the very definition of how charity is supposed to work. Donors want to know exactly how their donation is used, and we are going to give them that transparency”.
"Time and again, it has been shown that families who lose their homes tend to make wise decisions with very limited resources. These families face very real challenges that are impossible to anticipate, and we give them the flexibility they need to best serve their family".
Anyone interested in making a donation can visit the Foundation’s website at http://www.NDRF.us. Donors may also mail their donation to PO Box 26471, Gwynn Oak, MD 21207.
For larger donations, the Foundation offers a very unique incentive. Individuals who donate $1,000 or more have the option of attributing their donation in their name to the family who receives it (for example: “This gift was made possible by the generosity of Mr. John Smith, Boston”). The same incentive is afforded to businesses for contributions of $10,000 or more.
