Life-Saving Shelter

“I serve as a ShelterBox Response Team (SRT) member, am chair of the Board of Directors for ShelterBox, and am a longtime donor myself. I see directly how efficient, effective, and transparent we are with donor money. I also witness how those charitable dollars translate into life-saving shelter and supplies to families who have lost everything in disaster and conflict situations. Donors truly make the work of ShelterBox possible.”
– Katherine Fick, Senior Privacy Counsel, IBM Corporation. Volunteer SRT and Board of Directors at ShelterBox

Meeting a Global Crisis

ShelterBox currently spends about $20 million a year globally to provide a quarter of a million people the shelter and supplies to rebuild.
“Our goal is to scale to shelter one million people a year.” A feat that will necessitate, as Murray says, “raising a lot of financial support. Shelter is the first in recovery and it is an area that is chronically underfunded and overlooked. Shelter is deeply connected to livelihood. When you have a place to call home, you can get back to work and your children can get back to school.”
To get there requires donors like you. ShelterBox makes it easy to support the work with a registry where you can “Stock A Box” with everything a family needs to rebuild, including emergency tents. For $1,000 you can cover the cost of an entire box for a displaced family.
