Disaster Philanthropy Practices: Preparing for a Future of More Varied, More Intense, and More Frequent Disasters


June 2019 | Executive Summary

Disasters are becoming more intense, more frequent, and more varied than before, primarily due to climate change. A survey of members of The Conference Board Corporate Citizenship and Philanthropy Institute Councils, as well as discussions from a joint meeting of the Councils devoted to disaster philanthropy, has found that companies need to be prepared for a range of future disasters, which means being more active in every stage of disaster philanthropy, particularly preparation to help build resilient communities, systems, and infrastructure.
