Related Companies Chairman Steve Ross plans to donate $1 million to rebuilding efforts in Florida following the devastation of Hurricane Irma.

Ross’ Miami Dolphins has also teamed up with the AARP Foundation on a dollar-for-dollar matching campaign where all the proceeds will be dedicated to Florida communities hit hard by the storm, the Sun Sentinel reported. The team’s community service group, the Miami Dolphins Special Teams, will also assist with recovery efforts in Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties.

The team’s stadium — for which Ross recently put up $400 million of his own money for renovations, according to Forbes — managed to avoid sustaining any structural damage during the category 4 hurricane.

Ross is also a minority partner in the Related Group, by far the biggest condo developer in South Florida[SunSentinel] — Kathryn Brenzel
