The Finishing Industries Disaster Relief Fund (FIDRF) was established in 2005 following the devastation inflicted by Hurricane Katrina. The fund continues to this day as a way for the finishing industries to give back to charitable efforts as directed by the FCA Board of Directors.

2021 has seen natural disasters impact many areas across North America. Hurricane Ida has resulted in flooding and massive damage for many on the East Coast, and wildfires continue to ravage areas in the West. The FCA International Board of Directors voted to approve donations from the FIDRF to the red cross for Hurricane Ida relief and wildfire relief.
