Disaster Philanthropy

New report: Measuring the State of Disaster Philanthropy, seventh edition. The report draws from 13 data sources and documents $76 billion in private, public, corporate and individual disaster-related giving to address major disasters and humanitarian crises that affected millions globally in 2018. That year, we saw Hurricanes Michael and Florence, not one but three volcanic eruptions, a 7.5 magnitude earthquake in Indonesia, California’s most devastating wildfire season in terms of loss of life, and continued civil unrest in Syria and Yemen – just to name a few.
