Change the Face of Disaster Philanthropy
The Center for Disaster Philanthropy (CDP) is an exciting venture that is changing the face of emergency-related grantmaking, moving it from a reactive and emotion-driven response, to one focused on increasing the effectiveness of the private donor’s dollar for the good of affected communities worldwide.
By providing donors with the tools they need to make decisions to support disaster preparedness, relief and recovery, CDP brings more private philanthropic money to disaster response efforts and channels those funds in an innovative and strategic manner. CDP offers three distinct services to donors:
1) promotion of learning and information through a website and interactive portal, webinars and convenings;
2) mechanisms for pooling resources with a unique preparedness, risk reduction and recovery focus; and
3) custom consulting services to help donors be more strategic in their giving.
