State of Disaster Philanthropy

The Center for Disaster Philanthropy (CDP) has partnered with Candid to annually conduct the Measuring the State of Disaster Philanthropy: Data to Drive Decisions report, a comprehensive data collection and analysis effort on disaster-focused charitable giving.

The purpose of the report is to more accurately capture how philanthropy currently responds to disasters and encourage the philanthropy community to support the full arc of a disaster, not just the immediate humanitarian needs.

CDP works with Candid to establish baseline data, aggregate multiple data streams and track disaster giving globally.

An expert advisory committee and consultation with key stakeholders helps to guide the project. As this report grows from year to year, CDP and Candid look forward to broad participation and collaboration across the disaster philanthropy field to grow a data-gathering network composed of major grantors and grantees in the disaster field. Such a network will contribute to CDP and Candid’s efforts to create useful and relevant tools to assist better decision-making, transparency, and coordination.
