Please contact the Relief Foundation’s administrative office at 252-261-2004 to discuss your application.

Once the application has been submitted and initially reviewed by the Executive Director, it is assigned to one of 3 Board panels for their review and consideration. Should the panel determine that the Form of Need request is consistent with the mission of the Outer Banks Relief Foundation and merits full Board approval, the panel recommends a vote for approval by the Board of Directors. From initial submission of a completed Form of Need to a final Board decision for approval, the process normally takes from 2-3 weeks.

Since January, 2006, the Relief Foundation has distributed over $1.8 million in financial assistance to over 890 recipients in our Outer Banks community. Financial assistance gifts normally range between $500 and $2,000.

Do you know someone living or working on the Outer Banks with a debilitating disease, or someone experiencing a personal tragedy?  Please contact us. Thank you!
