$100,000 first major gift to Alabama Tornado Recovery Fund

May 4, 2011

Thank you to Medical Properties Trust for the first major gift to the Alabama Tornado Recovery Fund. This $100,000 contribution is a great boost to our state and we hope it inspires others to join in support of long-term needs across our state.

The Community Foundation established the Alabama Tornado Recovery Fund on April 29 in collaboration with 10 Alabama community foundations as a way to ensure that all areas could receive support for unmet needs. In addition to the Community Foundation of Greater Birmingham, the other nine community foundations serving the affected areas are:
Black Belt Community Foundation
Central Alabama Community Foundation
Community Foundation of Greater Decatur
Community Foundation of East Alabama
Community Foundation of Huntsville/Madison County
Limestone Area Community Foundation
Community Foundation of Northeast Alabama
Walker Area Community Foundation
Community Foundation of West Alabama

    Emily,
    You and the Community Foundation were like “First Responders” to the tornado victims. You are to be commended for pulling together so many like-minded groups to establish such a big gift so quickly.
