As Hurricanes Harvey and Irma deluge the people of Texas and Florida, members and friends of the C12 community want to help. To that end, C12 has partnered with WaterStone, a Christian public foundation and 501(c) 3, to create the C12 Disaster Relief Fund. The C12 Disaster Relief Fund has been established to receive tax-deductible contributions and make grants to nonprofit organizations that can make an immediate difference in the areas impacted by these devastating storms. The fund’s official statement of purpose is: To provide financial support to organizations serving those affected by devastating storms and natural disasters.
To make a tax-deductible donation to the C12 Disaster Relief Fund, mail a check to:

To make gifts of securities or other non-traditional assets, or if you have questions, please contact the WaterStone Giving Strategies Team at 719-447-4620 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
The WaterStone Giving Services Team can also help you make a grant from your WaterStone Giving Fund, private foundation or other Donor Advised Fund.
It is the hope of C12 and WaterStone that the C12 Disaster Relief Fund can channel vital resources to a host of organizations that are providing desperately needed assistance in the days, weeks, and months ahead.
The C12 Disaster Relief Fund will make grants to nonprofit organizations and churches to multiply the resources they need to care for all those who are displaced, distressed and in need of help in these tough times. In providing tangible assistance to those in need, the Fund will also support those organizations that can be salt and light to the world and reach and touch people with the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Please join all of us in the C12 and WaterStone communities and continue to lift up the people of Texas and Florida in your prayers. May God bless you.
