Corporate Citizenship Watch Disaster Philanthropy: Fifteen Years after Hurricane Katrina - Lessons Learned and Planning for the Future
AUGUST 25, 2020
Fifteen years ago, Hurricane Katrina hit the Gulf Coast, with more than 1,800 lives lost and damages estimated at over $100 billion. SBP (formerly the St. Bernard Project), a nonprofit, disaster relief organization, grew out of Katrina and has produced productive partnerships with companies such as Toyota Motor North America to build strategies around effective relief efforts, recovery, and rebuilding.
