The Support Surfside Fund was created to support those impacted by the devastating building collapse in Surfside, Florida. Support Surfside is a collaboration led by the Coral Gables Community Foundation, The Key Biscayne Community Foundation, and The Miami Foundation. We are standing together with more than 13,000 donors to help those impacted by the terrible crisis.
This application is for immediate philanthropic aid raised through Support Surfside for those directly impacted by the collapse of the Champlain Towers South Condominium on Thursday, June 24, 2021. The full guidelines for distributions from the Fund can be found at www.supportsurfside.org.
Gifts in the amount of $5,000 per family impacted will be made available to the designated representatives the following groups:
- Survivors of the Champlain Towers South collapse (i.e. - in the building at the time of the collapse)
- Current residents of Champlain Towers South but not present at the time of collapse
- Immediate family members or legally appointed representatives of missing or deceased individuals
Due to the devastation caused by the building collapse, our hope with this application is to minimize the burden on the applicants while still ensuring that the funds go directly to the individuals impacted.
Support Surfside is establishing a steering committee to oversee the balance of funds raised which will include opportunities for public input, but understanding the urgency of needs in this moment, we are dedicating funds now for initial and immediate assistance.
All applicants will need to create a free Submittable account by providing their name and email address. Any questions about the Fund should be directed to email@example.com. Please include Support Surfside and your full name and unit number in the subject line of the email.
