Hurricane Michael Relief Efforts

Please keep the residents of the Florida Panhandle and others who are dealing with the aftermath of Hurricane Michael in your thoughts and prayers. We have many students and members of the Baylor Family in the storm’s path as it continues toward the Carolinas. We know that God is the great provider in times of need, and we are reminded to be His hands and feet.
Dr. Linda A. Livingstone, Baylor University President

It is anticipated that a number of organizations will be involved in responding to the severe weather associated with Hurricane Michael. This web site will be used to communicate information about those activities and responses.

If you would like to provide immediate financial assistance to relief efforts in areas impacted by Hurricane Michael, you may want to consider one of the listed organizations/campaigns below.  While many of these organizations are focused on immediate relief efforts by providing shelter and supplies, some specialize in providing medical care and aid for those impacted. 

Monetary donations should only be made to fully vetted sites and organizations. Charity Navigator provides information on organizations, as well as ratings for more than 9,000 charities.

Note: While Baylor University is supportive of the relief efforts currently being conducted by these organizations, Baylor is not affiliated with them.
