Every year, billions of dollars are distributed in response to disasters and humanitarian crises. How much of this comes from foundations? What are other sources of funding? How much funding addresses long-term recovery and disaster preparation, in addition to emergency response and immediate relief?

To help answer these questions, Foundation Center partnered with the Center for Disaster Philanthropy to create the Measuring the State of Disaster Philanthropy mapping platform.

Join this course to learn about this online tool. By increasing knowledge about disaster giving, philanthropists, government agencies, and NGOs will be better able to coordinate their work and make more strategic decisions, ultimately resulting in more effective disaster philanthropy and assistance.
