Hurricane Preparation (Non-Profits, Small Businesses and Individuals)

All Florida Business should go to and Click on the section for businesses. The site allows you to devise a strategic business plan in the event of a hurricane, G-d forbid. Individuals should also go there to devise their own safety and home protection plans (click on the section for individuals).

In the event of damage contact me and I'll fill out your FEMA claim as a volunteer service. They may reimburse you for all clean-up costs.

There are also Pre-Mitigation Disaster Grants available for providing emergency housing, etc. in the event of a hurricane. It's best to organize a proposal that combines the services of several organizations. I have a school that wishes to be a part of this (providing strategic planning). Any community organizations that wish to take part should let me know. To be added to the proposal just let me know what your organization would like to do.

If anyone suffers personal losses, G-d forbid, please let me know and I'll provide them with a list of the best United Way and Social Services contacts in their area.

All Hurricane Grants and FEMA claims that Insiders Review assists your organization with will be done on a strictly volunteer basis.

Grants for the Elderly

The following is from the Jewish Funders website:
The Jewish Funders Network (JFN) and The Harry & Jeanette Weinberg Foundation, Inc. are delighted to announce a new matching grants initiative to address problems of poverty, primarily among the Jewish elderly. The Weinberg Foundation, one of the leading Jewish foundations in the world, will provide $2 million dollars to match JFN members' first-ever gifts, or significant increases to their previous largest gifts, to support programs that assist the poor elderly. Awards will go to Jewish social service organizations benefiting Jewish or non-Jewish poor elderly around the world. The amount of a qualifying gift must be a minimum of $25,000 and matching funds will be available up to $50,000 per donor. Complete details will be announced shortly.
The Jewish Funders Network (JFN) is an international organization of family foundations, public philanthropies, and individual funders dedicated to advancing the quality and growth of philanthropy rooted in Jewish values. JFN's members include independent philanthropists, foundation trustees and foundation professionals – a unique community that seeks to transform the nature of Jewish giving in both thought and action. More information can be found at
The Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Foundation annually distributes approximately $100 million to a wide range of charitable organizations. The Foundation is dedicated to assisting the poor, primarily through operating and capital grants to direct service organizations primarily located in Baltimore, Hawaii, Northeastern Pennsylvania, New York, Israel, and the Former Soviet Union. Grants are focused on meeting basic needs such as shelter, nutrition, health and socialization, and on enhancing an individual's ability to meet those needs. Within that focus, emphasis is placed on the elderly and on the Jewish community. Annual grants to Maryland recipients generally have averaged approximately 25 percent of the total. The trustees who also serve as executive officers of the Foundation are Alvin Awaya, Timothy P. Kelly, Barry Schloss, Donn Weinberg, and President Shale D. Stiller.
