On Dec. 10 and 11, tornadoes hit several states in one of the worst tornado outbreaks we have seen in recent years. CDP is hosting a webinar to explore how funders can think about medium- and long-term recovery amid planning for immediate response. Recovery, which is the process of improving structures, systems and services while also addressing sources of inequitable and unjust outcomes for survivors and their communities, starts right after a disaster. Yet, the most urgent needs are so front and center that our hearts, minds, and wallets tend to gravitate towards immediate relief efforts. How can funders think about both simultaneously?
Although the webinar will focus on Kentucky as the hardest-hit state, we will also share relevant insights into funding affected communities in other states.
What will you learn?
- How funders can think about medium and long-term recovery amid planning for immediate response
- Understanding the impact of these tornadoes and how best to support their disaster recovery
Who should attend?
While aimed at funders, it will also be of interest to emergency managers, academics, disaster responders and NGO staff working on the frontlines of this crisis.
- Tiffany Benjamin, CDP Board Vice Chair and President, Eli Lilly and Company Foundation
- John Pyron, Program Director, Lutheran Disaster Response

What else should I know?
The majority of tornado-hit communities are in rural areas. We also encourage you to watch last week’s “Beyond the headlines: Funding disasters in rural areas” webinar for a deep dive into the unique issues faced by rural communities to help plan your response to the December 2021 tornadoes.
