How to Use the Playbook

We have organized The Playbook’s information around issues that correspond to many grantmaking areas of focus, such as housing, mental health and wellness, education and others.

The Playbook is a collection of strategies, stories and resources compiled from submissions from grantmakers nationwide, in order to advance learning and understanding on how the philanthropic sector can respond to and, in some cases, lead the recovery in their communities, while implementing the lessons learned and preparedness practices in order to mitigate damage and loss of life should a disaster strike.

This website was designed so that it would be easy for you to pick and choose from the broad scope of its contents, compile relevant strategies, stories and resources into your own Playbook, curate them to suit your objectives, and share them with your network or community.

Each of the pages under the Strategies, Collaboration, Impact Stories, and Resources sections of this site contains the Save to My Playbook button:

Clicking/tapping the Save to My Playbook button will save that page to your own customizable and shareable Playbook.
