Strengthening disaster resilience in Texas communities
AmeriCorps Texas strengthens Texas communities by engaging diverse and passionate individuals in hands-on direct service opportunities to tackle systemic social challenges.
When disasters strike Texas communities, the Rebuild Texas Fund connects your helping hand to Texan communities in need. As the organization designated by the Office of the Governor to receive private donations following a disaster, we strategically collect and distribute funding and additional resources to eligible organizations in impacted areas to build resilience.
We work with local leaders to identify community-driven priorities, unmet needs, and funding gaps in affected regions. We provide local leaders and organizations with the financial and technical expertise needed to recover stronger than before. Our community-centered approach is swift and purposeful – providing the greatest possible impact for Texans rebuilding lives and livelihood.
Every year, Texans struggle to rebound, recover, and resume life following devastating events of the Atlantic hurricane season. The Hurricane Season Recovery Fund is a perpetual fund, providing grant funding for the relief and recovery of Texas communities in the wake of the annual season’s events.
The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted all Texans – but has disproportionately impacted communities of color and our most vulnerable and underserved citizens. Texas COVID Relief Fund provided funding to organizations supporting these populations through project and operational grants to fund urgent needs in the areas of health, education, and community development.
Building resilience requires hard work and committed resources as much for disaster preparedness during blue skies as for long-term recovery following a disaster. That’s why we raise funds year-round to support Texas communities.
Giving is easy and simple. Your tax-deductible donation will help us:

In 2017, OneStar and the Michael & Susan Dell Foundation launched the Rebuild Texas Fund in response to the devastating impact of Hurricane Harvey. Through the Rebuild Texas Fund, OneStar continues to support Texas communities in times of disaster and crisis. Through this effort, together we served more than 2 million Texans to rebuild their lives and communities
We worked collaboratively with local leaders in 41 Texas counties impacted by Hurricane Harvey to support recovery and rebuilding efforts. Our efforts focused on five key areas: community & economic development, education & child care, workforce & transportation, housing, health, and small business.
