State of Disaster Philanthropy 2022: COVID-19 and beyond

2 p.m. ET / 1 p.m. CT

Each year, millions of philanthropic dollars are distributed to thousands of organizations across the charitable sector in the U.S. and other countries in response to disasters and humanitarian crises worldwide. This funding is dwarfed by the billions of dollars invested by governments.

To help understand where funding comes from and how the dollars are used, the Center for Disaster Philanthropy (CDP) and Candid produce the annual Measuring the State of Disaster Philanthropy report. This report also examines how much funding addresses immediate relief, long-term recovery, preparedness and disaster risk reduction.

The Center for Disaster Philanthropy (CDP) and Candid hosted a webinar to highlight findings from the 2022 Measuring the State of Disaster Philanthropy report.

Speakers shared insights into the philanthropic and governmental response to disasters that occurred in 2020 such as the record-breaking Atlantic hurricane season, Cyclone Amphan, Puerto Rico’s earthquake swarm and Australia’s “Black Summer” wildfires of 2019-2020. They explored the huge difference between typical year-to-year disaster funding and the unusual impact of COVID-19 on philanthropic giving.

CDP Director of Learning and Partnerships Tanya Gulliver-Garcia moderated the discussion and panelists included:

This webinar was presented in partnership with Candid and the New York Life Foundation and was co-sponsored by the Association of Corporate Citizenship Professionals, Alliance Magazine, Chief Executives for Corporate Purpose (CECP), Giving CompassUnited Philanthropy Forum, PEAK GrantmakingPhilanthropy New York and National VOAD.
