Every year, billions of dollars are distributed in response to disasters and humanitarian crises. How much of this comes from foundations? What are other sources of funding? How much funding addresses long-term recovery and disaster risk reduction, in addition to emergency response and immediate relief?

To help answer these questions, the Measuring the State of Disaster Philanthropy webinar featured the updated report and interactive tools in a presentation on how to use data to make strategic, informed disaster-related giving decisions. Hosted by Foundation Center and the Center for Disaster Philanthropy (CDP) on November 8, 2017, the webinar discussion was led by CDP President and CEO Bob Ottenhoff and Foundation Center Vice President for Knowledge Services Larry McGill.

Watch the webinar recording to learn more about recovery challenges and opportunities.

The annual analysis of funding for disasters and humanitarian crises is made possible with generous support from the Irene W. and C.B. Pennington Foundation, with additional funding from the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation.
