ORLANDO, Fla. – Today, Governor Rick Scott recognized Magellan Cares Foundation Inc. for donating $10,000 to the Florida Disaster Fund to support the organizations that serve survivors, their families, and all those in need. Magellan Cares Foundation Inc. is a nonprofit charitable organization launched last year by Magellan Health, a health care management company headquartered in Arizona.

Governor Scott said, “The Magellan Cares Foundation Inc. donated $10,000 to the Florida Disaster Fund in honor of the victims and survivors of the Orlando terror attack. I am proud to see so many organizations and individuals give to the Florida Disaster Fund, even though they may never directly know the people who will receive the important services and support this funding will provide. Every dollar given will help make a difference during this incredibly difficult time, and I am so thankful to everyone working together to support the Orlando community.”

Sam K. Srivastava, Chief Executive Officer of Magellan Healthcare, said, “We have a deep connection to the Orlando community. We felt it was vitally important to show our support to the community in this time of need.”

The Florida Disaster Fund is the State of Florida’s official private fund established to assist Florida’s communities as they respond to and recover during times of emergency or disaster. In partnership with the public sector, private sector and other non-governmental organizations, the Florida Disaster Fund supports response and recovery activities. There is no overhead funding; 100% of funds raised will go toward those in need. Donations to the Florida Disaster Fund are made to the Volunteer Florida Foundation, 501(c)(3) charitable organization and are tax deductible.
