Our History


The May 22, 2011 tornado that demolished Joplin, MO will go down in America’s history as the deadliest tornado in over 60 years. It caused so much damage that it has been entered in the record books as the most expensive tornado in U.S. history.

On June 11, 2011, ADRF founder Dan Gifford III and a group of volunteers left for Joplin to help this devastated area in anyway possible. On that one week trip, the idea for American Disaster Relief Foundation (ADRF) was born.

The “American Disaster Relief Foundation” was incorporated on November 17, 2011. On September 22, 2012, one year after the U.S. was changed forever.
