Story County Disaster Recovery Fund

The Story County Community Foundation Disaster Recovery Fund (DRF) has been activated as we recover from the impact of recent severe weather.

The DRF provides an opportunity for the public to give with the reassurance their donations will be used to quickly move resources to where they are most needed and to adapt to evolving needs during times of disaster.
