Charities Providing Aid to Those Affected By Earthquakes in Mexico

Earthquakes in Mexico Header Image

On September 7th, an 8.1 magnitude earthquake hit Mexico's southern coastline. Infrastructure was severely damaged and over 100 people are reported to have perished as a result of the earthquake. On Tuesday, September 19th, a 7.1 magnitude earthquake hit Mexico, close to 400 miles away from the previous earthquake's epicenter. Over 200 people have died as a result of the 7.1 magnitude earthquake, leaving it as the deadliest earthquake in over thirty years. In addition to the destruction brought on by both earthquakes, Mexico is also facing severe damage from Hurricane Katia, a Category 1 storm which struck the east coast of Mexico two days after the 8.1 magnitude earthquake.

Charity Navigator has compiled a list of highly-rated organizations responding in the aftermath of the earthquakes and hurricane and providing assistance to the communities affected. Donors can designate their donations to the cause on the organization's website. All listed charities have made their designation policies available on their respective websites.

You can find more information about inclusion on this list by visiting our 'How Can My Charity Be Added To This List?' page.

Designated donations made from this page will be applied to charity programs per each charity's designation policies.
