The Next Phase of Community Recovery

As recovery from the May 7 tornadoes continues, United Way SCMI and Kalamazoo Community Foundation (KZCF) are collaborating to lend our shared strengths to relief efforts. We are working alongside partners at Gryphon Place and 2-1-1 as they identify community needs and determine how best to mobilize resources. To contribute to the overall recovery effort, you can donate to the Community Urgent Relief Fund (CURF) at KZCF by clicking the button below.

If you wish to make a grant suggestion from your KZCF Donor Advised Fund (DAF) to the Community Urgent Relief Fund, you can do so via Kalamazoo Connect. Instructions on how to do so can be found here.
