The Foundation responded to the needs of those affected by the devastation of
Hurricane Andrew that struck southern Florida and the Gulf Coast states in
1992. Closely following the hurricane the Pacific Ocean typhoon Iniki struck
the island of Guam, and the Foundation immediately offered assistance to
Society members and current FBI personnel on the island.
Also in 1992, a Society member, who had devoted several years to construction
of a permanent residence, saw it completely destroyed in an earthquake. The
Foundation provided immediate cash assistance to mitigate some of
the impact of the loss of his home.
In 1994, the Foundation learned of members who suffered losses as a
result of the North Ridge, CA, earthquake, and donated cash to the Relief
Fund set up in the FBI's Los Angeles Division. Individual cash grants also
were made to Society members whose homes were severely damaged.
To apply for assistance or to report a need, contact the Foundation at (703) 445-0026.
