Measuring the State of Disaster Philanthropy 2020: Data to Drive Decisions

Publication date: 
November, 2020

Disasters and humanitarian crises affected millions of people globally in 2018. Donors responded generously to these disasters: How were their dollars allocated?

The Center for Disaster Philanthropy and Candid (formerly Foundation Center and GuideStar), created this report and interactive dashboard to provide an analysis of disaster-related funding by foundations, governments, corporations, and individuals. The data presented illuminates funding trends, exposes imbalances in where and when contributions are made, and helps donors make more strategic decisions about their investments in the full life cycle of disasters, including preparedness and recovery efforts.
