AARC Disaster Relief Fund

AARC Disaster Relief Fund

The AARC Disaster Relief Fund was launched in 1992 to assist members who have suffered damage to their homes or other personal property as a result of federally declared natural disasters. Over the past 26 years the fund has been activated to help members who’ve lost property due to hurricanes, tornadoes, floods, earthquakes, and fires.

Once activated, members have six months to apply for a grant of $1000. Only individuals who were members of the AARC at the time of the disaster are eligible for grants from this fund. See the AARC Disaster Relief Policy for more information.

Donate to the Fund

The fund would not be possible without the generous donations from the AARC membership. If you would like to contribute to AARC’s Disaster Relief Fund, send a check made payable to AARC, 9425 N. MacArthur Blvd., Suite 100, Irving, TX 75063, and put “Disaster Fund” in the memo section of the check. You can also donate online or call Crystal Maldonado at (972) 406-4682 to make a donation with a credit card.
