The Celia Lipton Farris and Victor W. Farris Foundation recognizes that disasters can have a profound impact on the people affected, including their ability to remain self-sufficient and to lead healthy, fulfilling lives. As a result, the Foundation’s Trustees have established a Disaster Contingency Fund allowing the Foundation to make timely, impactful relief and recovery grants in times of disaster.

Recommendations for this funding are, in all cases, initiated by the Foundation’s Trustees. Uninvited proposals or inquiries will not be considered.
