NATCA Disaster Relief Fund

$90,740 of $100,000 goal

Raised by 710 people in 13 months
Created August 28, 2017
As severe storms ravage the Southern & Southwest Regions, NATCA activated its disaster relief fund to assist members affected by the hurricanes. The facilities of these regions are rallying to offer support and assistance, as is the NATCA family as a whole.

While the extent of the damage is unclear at this point, the need for aid will be significant. NATCA is preparing to assist our brothers and sisters who are in disaster zones.

NATCA established a disaster relief fund in 1992 in the wake of Hurricane Andrew. It provides assistance to our members who have experienced catastrophic losses of property and helps provide a lifeline during those most desperate times. Due to the generosity of our membership, our fund has continued to grow after that horrific storm, and has allowed NATCA members to help those affected after Hurricanes Katrina and Rita (2005), Ike (2008), and Matthew (2016).

As we await word from our members as to the extent of their losses, we want to ensure that there are sufficient funds available to purchase food, gasoline, or any other supplies that might be required. Any donations made through this GoFundMe will go directly to the NATCA disaster relief fund for this effort. We have volunteers ready to purchase and deliver supplies as soon as we know the need.

Please consider a donation to assist our brothers and sisters who have been ravaged by this terrible storm. You can also send a check to: NATCA National Office; ATTN: Disaster Relief Fund, 1325 Massachusetts Ave., NW, Washington, D.C., 2005.

To our members in the affected areas: Please continue to take all precautions to ensure the safety of yourself and your families. We are with you in solidarity and are here to help in any way we can.

If you or someone you know are in need of assistance, please submit a request to https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/37372DK.

Update, Oct. 18

Including all three recent hurricanes, the NATCA Disaster Relief Fund has assisted nearly 150 members with funds totaling just over $100K. More than 20 of those members lost their homes.

Approximately $30K was used for supplies.

Thank you to everyone who has donated so generously to the Fund. The need remains great, however, especially in Puerto Rico and St. Thomas. In this video, shot and produced by San Juan Tower FacRep Kyrandgel Rios, you can get a sense of the scale of the disaster as experienced by our members in P.R. before, during, and after Hurricane Maria hit:

We ask for your continued support. Thank you.

Hurricane Maria is the third major hurricane in four weeks to hit areas that many members of our NATCA family call home. NATCA represents 110 total members in our six Caribbean facilities, including four facilities in Puerto Rico (SJU, ZSU, BQN, SIG), as well as the FAA tower at St. Thomas and the Federal Contract Tower in St. Croix. NATCA is working to ensure that all members are accounted for and safe, and assessing their needs as we support them during what will be a long recovery for them and their beloved home islands.

The winds, rain, and flooding have caused unbelievable damage in Puerto Rico. This on top of the flooding in the Houston and Gulf Coast region from Hurricane Harvey, and the devastation caused to St. Thomas and damage in many parts of Florida from Hurricane Irma.

The needs of so many of our members are becoming apparent and we are asking the NATCA family to please help during this time when we come together as one to help. The NATCA Disaster Relief Fund is the primary source of assistance available to NATCA members. This fund relies in part on donations. Thank you for your solidarity and your support.

If you or someone you know are in need of assistance, please submit a request to https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/37372DK. Thank you for helping in any way you can.
