Disaster Recovery Fund
In the past few months, over five million acres have burned on the West Coast due to uncontrollable fires. This is almost 23,000 times the size of SUNY Geneseo's campus. As a result of the devastating fires, we renamed our fund to provides aid to support communities impacted by the fires on the West Coast as well as those impacted by the hurricanes and flooding in the gulf coast and south eastern United States.
