Every year, disasters and humanitarian crises affect millions of people globally. Millions of philanthropic dollars are distributed to the thousands of organizations across the charitable sector in the U.S. and other countries in response to these emergencies. This funding is dwarfed by the billions of dollars invested by governments worldwide. To help understand where funding comes from and how the dollars are used, the Center for Disaster Philanthropy (CDP) and Candid produce the annual Measuring the State of Disaster Philanthropy report. This report also examines how much funding addresses long-term recovery, preparedness and disaster risk reduction, in addition to immediate relief.


  • Findings from the 2021 Measuring the State of Disaster Philanthropy report
  • Insights into the philanthropic and governmental response to disasters that occurred in 2019, including Hurricane Dorian, Cyclone Idai and wildfires in Australia and California
  • How private dollars are differentiated from public dollars domestically and globally
  • What funders can do to supplement the restrictions public dollars often have


Who should attend?

While aimed at funders, this webinar may also be helpful for community organizations, government staff and political and faith leaders looking to understand the scope and scale of disaster funding.
