In order to respond to the devastation caused by Hurricane Katrina and assist fellow geographers and others in need, the Association of American Geographers (AAG) has organized an online clearinghouse at , and established a fund to support geography departments and others impacted by the storm. Departments and others in need in the affected regions have been invited to send them a list of items (such as books, other publications, maps, and electronic materials) or services (including remote sensing, emergency mapping, special expertise, etc.) and they will post these lists on the clearinghouse as a way of linking colleagues interested in helping out with those in need. The AAG has also established a special fund, which will go towards rebuilding departments and assisting others in the hardest hit areas. Geographers and others can contribute to the fund online at .
