On May 20, 2013, a two-mile-wide EF5 tornado tore through Oklahoma City's suburbs, demolishing an elementary school, homes and businesses. The storm resulted in fatalities and the hospitalization of hundreds. There will be both short term and long term recovery needs. But before you contribute to one of the highly-rated charities listed here that are responding, please read our Tips For Giving In Times of Crisis.
Also keep in mind:
Regarding this list of charities:
We will update this list as we become aware of more charities helping.
Why isn't Salvation Army listed here?
The Salvation Army is exempt under Internal Revenue Code from filing Form 990 as a "church or convention or association of churches." As a result, we lack sufficient data to evaluate their financial health. We know many donors are interested in this organization and have asked the Salvation Army to submit their financial data to us for review, and they have elected to decline, as they are allowed under federal law.
