A fertilizer plan exploded on April 17, 2013, in West, Texas, causing tremendous destruction (including more than 100 homes), injuries and fatalities. Here are some ways you can help:
Make a Donation
Charities that have been Rated by Charity Navigator
Funds Unrated by Charity Navigator
We list this unrated appeal to support the West, Texas victims, with the information we have been able to obtain about it, to help inform potential donors. However, we caution that gifts to unrated charities may be more risky than gifts to a fully vetted charity.
Other Ways to Help
You may also want to consider other ways to help such as donating blood, signing up to get trained as a disaster volunteer, or volunteering your time or donating to a charity in your local community.
If even a third of the 7 million people who visited our site last year had donated a dollar to Charity Navigator, we would comfortably meet our annual budget and be able to do what so many of you ask us to do every day--rate more charities!
