About Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund
After receiving an overwhelming number of inquiries from citizens and companies who want to help, Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner established the Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund that accepts tax deductible flood relief donations for victims that have been affected by the recent flood. The fund is housed at the Greater Houston Community Foundation, a 501(c)(3) public charity.
