In response to the 2010 earthquake disaster, the Imperial Valley Community Foundation has established the Imperial Valley Regional Disaster Fund to raise funds and assist in the recovery process for the Imperial Valley. Once again for the swarm of earthquakes hitting Brawley starting on August 26th, 2012, the IV Regional Disaster Fund worked to raise charitable donations that granted to the most effective and efficient qualified 501(c) 3 organizations providing disaster relief services in the Imperial Valley. Grants will be awarded based on need, priority and successful application.

The IVCF board of directors and IV Regional Disaster Fund committee, is and will continue to actively monitor disaster situations, their effects and community needs. We are committed to making every effort possible to ensure that the community's immediate needs are met. If and when it is determined that victims needs have been satisfactorily met, any remaining funds and donations will be used for readiness, response and relief programs in the case of future manmade or natural disasters.

IVCF also helped establish and provides leadership to the Imperial Valley Disaster Recovery Team - a collective effort of local government and public safety agencies, community organizations, service clubs, volunteers and businesses that were instrumental in aiding disaster victims and building working-relationships to better prepare for and respond to future emergencies.

The IV Regional Disaster Fund is possible thanks to this growing list of community leaders and supporters:
