Beyond the typical grant: Alternative ways to fund disasters
2 p.m. ET / 1 p.m. CT
In U.S. philanthropy, funders usually focus on making grants to organizations with a 501(c)(3) tax designation from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). Yet, there are many other ways to fund domestically and internationally.
The Center for Disaster Philanthropy hosted a webinar to help foundations, corporations and individual donors explore non-501(c)(3) organizations and the different ways to support them beyond traditional grantmaking. Click To Tweet
We delved into supporting U.S. organizations that have other IRS designations, funding grassroots organizations and supporting local service providers outside the U.S. We looked at program-related investments, bridge loans, pass-through grants, fiscal sponsorship, seed funding and pooled or intermediary funds.
While aimed at funders, it may also be of interest to emergency managers, academics, disaster responders and NGO staff interested in or working on disasters and other crises.
CDP President and CEO Patricia McIlreavy moderated the discussion and panelists included:
- Baylen Campbell, Director of Community Impact, Invest Appalachia
- Courtney Eskew, Grant Director, GlobalGiving
- Lita Pardi, Programs and Knowledge Director, PEAK Grantmaking
