Publication date: 
October, 2020

Jointly produced by Foundation Center and the Center for Disaster Philanthropy, Measuring the State of Disaster Philanthropy 2020: Data to Drive Decisions analyzes funding trends for disasters and humanitarian crises in 2018.

Each year, the Center for Disaster Philanthropy (CDP) and Candid examine global disaster-related funding from foundations, bilateral and multilateral donors, the U.S. federal government, and corporations and donations through donor advised funds and online platforms. Funding is analyzed according to a taxonomy that classifies giving by type of disaster and disaster assistance strategy.

As the world continues to cope with the COVID-19 pandemic while addressing record-breaking wildfires in California and other parts of the U.S., Siberia, and the Amazon as well as another devastating hurricane season, what lessons can we take from the philanthropic response to disasters in 2018?
