Google

When giving to a disaster, you want to be confident your donations go to established, trustworthy organizations making a local impact for a given crisis. The innovative partnership between Google and the Center for Disaster Philanthropy helps you do exactly that. The funds raised for each disaster will be used to support medium- and long-term recovery in the affected communities.

Make your disaster donations count

Here’s how Google and CDP work together to provide donors worldwide the opportunity to be responsive and effective with their disaster giving.

  1. When a disaster or crisis event happens, Google looks to CDP for prompt, expert analysis of where donations should be transferred. A 501c3 nonprofit organization, CDP’s mission is to provide donors timely and effective strategies to increase their disaster giving impact.
  2. Leveraging an extensive partner network, CDP conducts an in-depth assessment of the short- and long-term needs of the affected community.
  3. After determining how the local response is unfolding, CDP identifies organizations who are best positioned to fill any unmet needs. Organizations vetted by CDP are known for their integrity, effectiveness, and creativity in disaster response work, and often lead the way in humanitarian work and initiatives around the world.
  4. CDP transfers donations in the most efficient way possible directly to the responding organizations on the ground.
