Center for Disaster Philanthropy Awarded $10.9 Million in 2019

The Center for Disaster Philanthropy has announced that it awarded $10.9 million in 2019 in support of sixty-five organizations working to assist communities affected by flooding, hurricanes, wildfires, and cyclones.

With funding from foundations, corporations, and individuals, CDP provided targeted, localized grants in response to several major disasters, including the deadly Camp Fire in Northern California, where the organization awarded a grant in support of mental health outreach, assistance, and services for school-age children and their families in Butte County; Hurricane Florence in North Carolina, where a grant from CDP supported disaster services and assistance to people with disabilities and more inclusive emergency management planning; and Cyclone Idai, which devastated portions of Malawi and Mozambique.

The organization also provided continuing support for rebuilding efforts in the wake of Hurricane Harvey, which struck the Texas Gulf Coast region in 2017, and awarded a number of grants to fund debris-removal programs on Abaco and Grand Bahama islands in the Bahamas in the wake of Hurricane Dorian.
