As our climate warms, and hurricanes and other natural disasters increase in frequency and intensity, this fund will serve as DigitalOcean's ongoing support of the hardest hit communities. The organizations included in this fund are active, on-the-ground supporting disaster relief across the world. A few recent examples include Hurricanes Maria and Fiona in Puerto Rico, and Hurricane Ian in Cuba, Florida and other parts of the southeast US. We've created this fund for our employees to give what they can to help communities hit hardest by these natural disasters. Feel free to donate to this fund, which will share donations across the multiple organizations included below, or click into one or more of the organizations to donate directly. Additionally, if you have other organizations supporting relief efforts that you'd like to see added to this list, please reach out to the DO Impact team. As always, DO will match every dollar donated by its employees.
