Philanthropy and the Global Refugee Crisis

Philanthropy New York is monitoring the global refugee crisis resulting from the violence and economic instability in the Middle East, Southeast Asia, Central America, Eastern Europe, and elsewhere that is deeply affecting surrounding nations.  We are fielding information requests from our members and other foundations looking for information on how philanthropy can positively contribute resources and knowledge to larger efforts.
