The Michael & Susan Dell Foundation (an Austin based charity from Dell Technologies and CEO Michael Dell) has begun a campaign called the ‘Rebuild Texas Fund.’
Houston native Dell CEO Michael Dell says, “This is our home. And we know that it will take all of us working together, over the long term, to rebuild our Texas communities,”–“The Rebuild Texas Fund will be a partnership among rally companies, community leaders and individuals to work alongside state and federal officials to provide an additional source of funding and ideas for recovery and rebuilding.”
Governor Greg Abbott says, “Over the past week we have seen Texans and Americans come together to assist in the relief and recovery efforts and I have no doubt that this generosity will extend to this fund”–“I thank Michael and Susan Dell for their commitment to the State of Texas and to all those affected by Hurricane Harvey.”
The Dells have committed $36mil and plan to raise $100mil for rebuilding Texas areas damaged by Hurricane Harvey and it’s flooding.
