Georgetown University: Report Analyzes Disaster Relief Philanthropy

Georgetown University: Report Analyzes Disaster Relief Philanthropy: "Report Analyzes Disaster Relief Philanthropy

With the number of reported natural and man-made disasters rising significantly in the last decade, a new study released by Georgetown University’s Institute for the Study of International Migration (ISIM), makes key recommendations on ways to improve philanthropic giving for natural disaster and humanitarian emergency relief around the globe.

The report, “Philanthropic Grantmaking for Disaster Management: Trend Analysis and Recommended Improvements,” includes steps that must be taken to address the full range of needs associated with disasters. In particular, the report’s authors suggest that donor organizations should employ a more comprehensive approach beyond immediate relief to focus on prevention, response and recovery."
