ORLANDO, FL - Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer announced the formation of the OneOrlando Fund. The purpose of the Fund is to provide a way to help respond to the needs of our community, now and in the time to come, after the effects of the Pulse nightclub tragedy.

The distribution of the funds will be administered by the Central Florida Foundation. The Foundation serves as the region’s community foundation and is home to more than 400 charitable funds.

The fund will support:

  •  Nonprofits that are supporting the victims and families,
  • The LGBTQ, Hispanic, faith and other affected communities,
  • Underlying causes of this tragic event, and
  • Other needs we cannot anticipate until we face them.

The OneOrlando Fund is a project of Strengthen Orlando, Inc., a 501(c)3 nonprofit corporation created for the purpose of supporting and starting projects to strengthen the Orlando community.

The outpouring of support from our City partners has already begun. To contribute to the OneOrlando Fund, please visit OneOrlando.org.
