MCBDDS launches campaign for people impacted by tornadoes

Many of people have reached out to the Montgomery County Board of Developmental Disabilities Services, asking how they can help people affected by the recent tornadoes. We now have an Emergency Relief Fund set up to help the 179 individuals with developmental disabilities who suffered damage to their homes and personal property in Montgomery County.

The purpose of this fundraising effort to provide these individuals with start-up funds for new housing; to help them replace some of their personal belongings; and to offset some of the unexpected costs from the storms, including hotel fees, spoiled groceries, and more. We have established a fund through The Dayton Foundation called “The Montgomery County Board of Developmental Disabilities Services Emergency Fund 8345” that will allow people to make donations via credit card or U.S. Mail.

To contribute to the fund via credit card:

Follow the link below to The Dayton Foundation’s secure website. Once there, visitors should see the name of the fund, “Montgomery County Board of Developmental Disabilities Services Emergency Fund 8345,” in the “Apply My Gift To” field. Please follow the directions on the page, and fill out the fields as indicated. 

To contribute to the fund by check via U.S. Mail:

  • Please make your check payable to The Dayton Foundation.
  • Specify in the memo portion of your check that this donation is for the “MCBDDS Emergency Relief Fund #8345”
  • Mail your donation to:

The Dayton Foundation
c/o The Montgomery County Board of DD Emergency Relief Fund
40 N. Main Street, Suite 500
Dayton, OH 45423

Requests for assistance will be reviewed by Board leadership and disbursed to individuals with the most significant needs. 100 percent of donated funds will go directly to provide emergency support for people with developmental disabilities unless using a credit card, where a 3 percent fee will be applied to all transactions to cover the cost of processing.

All donors will receive a letter from The Dayton Foundation acknowledging their donation as a deductible charitable contribution.
