Time and time again Philanthropy New York members are called upon to respond to disasters -- from 9/11 to Hurricane Katrina, the Japanese earthquake and tsunami and the earthquake in Haiti. We often encourage our members to pause during the immediate rush to respond with emergency supplies and money, knowing that the philanthropic efforts can be most valuable later in the recovery and rebuilding process.
Yet, as members often feel drawn to helping, either because it is connected to their mission, or because of the nature of a particular disaster, they remain confused about how to be as thoughtful and informed in this work, as they expect to be in their day to day funding.
Now, there is a new resource at your disposal. Join us to learn more by hearing from Lori Bertman, co-founder of the newly launched Center for Disaster Philanthropy, on ways that you can be most effective when responding to a disaster.
