Jewelers Disaster Relief Fund

Raised by 40 people in 5 months
Help jewelers who are hardest hit by natural disasters. Please consider donating any amount to help us reach our goal.

Natural disasters are on the rise, with hurricanes and wildfires raging on either coast, and our hearts go out to those who are affected. Jewelers of America, the Diamond Council of America and National Jeweler have created this fund to collect donations for independent jewelers impacted by a natural disaster. It's our mission to help jewelers in times of success and distress, and we believe we are stronger together. Let's band together as a jewelry community and help fellow jewelers in their recovery efforts.

Your support is appreciated in our effort to lessen the burden of our fellow jewelers who may have a long road of recovery ahead with their businesses and families. 

All funds raised will be dispersed directly to independent jewelry stores in the U.S. and it’s territories.

If you or a jeweler you know is in the impact area of a natural disaster, our hearts go out to you. To help us begin to compile a list of jewelers in need, business owners interested in receiving support from this Fund should click here to submit a few details

Contributions to qualified 501(c)(3) organizations may be deductible as charitable contributions on a donor's federal income tax return. Donations will be made to Diamond Council of America a 501(c)(3), who will disperse 100% of the funds raised directly to independent jewelry stores within an impact zone.

Update: Hurricane Harvey and future disaster relief for jewelers

The Diamond Council of America, Jewelers of America and National Jeweler originally created this fund to collect donations for independent jewelers hardest hit by Hurricane Harvey. As of September 8, through the generous support of donors, we have collected $5,030 towards our goal. All of these funds will be distributed equally and directly to independent jewelers within the Texas impact zone.

We cannot ignore the escalation of natural disasters, with additional hurricanes developing in the Atlantic and wildfires raging in the west. Therefore, to be able to support jewelers when and where they need it most, we are transitioning this fund to a Jewelers Disaster Relief Fund that will exist to support independent jewelers across the country. Future funds raised will be distributed to jewelers who have been impacted severely by natural disasters.

Our hope is that this Fund becomes a unified resource for the jewelry industry to support its own in their greatest times of need. We believe we are stronger together, let's continue to band together as a jewelry community and help fellow jewelers in their recovery efforts.
