The Center on Disaster Philanthropy recently released a report on the State of Disaster Philanthropy, which shows that most philanthropic giving worldwide is for disaster response and recovery.
From the Northern California Grantmakers, "In the space between hazard and disaster lies prevention. There is nothing “natural” about disasters. Society, not nature, creates disasters. Disasters don’t have to happen in our communities if we make the right investments at the right time in the right places."
With this in mind, can you make a pledge to significantly increasing the amount you give to disaster prevention and mitigation? Please email email@example.com to let us know. We'd be delighted to support you in this work!
