The Disaster Philanthropy Playbook is a compilation of philanthropic strategies, promising practices and lessons learned that help communities be better prepared when a disaster strikes their community. In particular, it is aimed at helping philanthropic organizations and individual donors be more strategic with their investments and recognize the importance of supporting long-term recovery for vulnerable populations.


Designed with informative, easy-to-use tools, this Playbook serves the needs of multiple audiences, including philanthropic organizations, individual donors (including donor-advised funds), national and regional associations, government and nonprofit organizations to prepare for and respond to disasters.
