Disaster Philanthropy Basics

Disaster Philanthropy Basics

Tuesday, June 18, 2024, 2:00 - 3:00 PM

We continue to watch what feels like a never-ending stream of disasters unfold in our local communities and around the globe – hurricanes, wildfires, a pandemic, floods, and human-made crises. For grantmakers, it’s crucial to know when to respond and how. Since 2010, the Center for Disaster Philanthropy (CDP) has been helping individuals, foundations and corporations increase the effectiveness of their philanthropic response to disasters and humanitarian crises. 

Join this session to:
  • Become more familiar with the lifecycle of disasters and the basics of disaster philanthropy.
  • Understand good giving practices and what to consider in your disaster response.
  • Learn how the Center for Disaster Philanthropy works in collaboration with funders, grantee partners, and communities.
  • Tanya Gulliver-Garcia, Director of Advisory and Education Services, Center for Disaster Philanthropy
