AT&T pledges $1.4M to hurricane relief in communities hit by Harvey & Irma with new matching donation

The devastation wrought by disasters like Hurricanes Irma and Harvey require a long-term effort to rebuild. Team Rubicon and its cadre of high-skilled, mostly veteran volunteers are the best of the best. And we’re proud to stand with them. So now, let us come to together and raise $2 million.

AT&T will match each dollar donated to Team Rubicon through the text-to-donate program, no matter which wireless carrier you use, up to $1 million. By texting RUBICON to 80077, $10 will be donated by the customer to Team Rubicon (TR), a veteran-led disaster response organization, and then matched by AT&T.*

During disasters, our communities need rapid response, as well as sustained recovery. That’s why AT&T is committing to donate another $1.4 million to hurricane relief, which includes:

  • The $1 million matching donation to Team Rubicon
  • $150,000 to Telecoms Sans Frontieres, a group that is working to reestablish connectivity for emergency responders and communities in the Caribbean
  • And finally $250,000 to local charities in states impacted by Irma. We will work with state officials to direct the $250,000 donations where they can be most beneficial.

In response to Hurricane Harvey, AT&T previously contributed $100,000 to the Greater Houston Community Fund, $100,000 to the American Red Cross Hurricane Harvey Fund and $50,000 to the Coastal Bend Community Foundation in South Texas.
