Corporate Disaster Philanthropy: Make the Most of Your Resources
Our country and the world has seen what feels like a never-ending stream of disasters – storms and wildfires, global pandemic, community unrest, economic distress – no communities or companies were left untouched by these challenges. Often, businesses are on the front lines with expertise, resources, and human capital to help their neighbors heal. Join the Center for Disaster Philanthropy to learn about their new report on COVID response funding and to discuss how your company’s philanthropy can have the greatest impact during a time of crisis. We’ll also be joined by corporate grantmaking peers from across the country to share their approach and hope you’ll feel comfortable sharing some, too.
