You can contribute to MCBDDS Emergency Fund for tornado survivors

179 Montgomery County residents with developmental disabilities suffered damage to their homes and personal property in the Memorial Day 2019 tornado outbreak.  Many people have reached out to MCBDDS, asking how you can help those affected.

The Montgomery County Board of Developmental Disabilities Services has launched a fundraising effort to provide impacted individuals with start-up funds for new housing; to help them replace some of their personal belongings, such as furniture and clothing; 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.
