The Future Of Disaster Philanthropy

A new white paper from GlobalGiving explores the future of corporate disaster philanthropy in the age of climate change.



Disaster philanthropy is at a critical juncture.

Around the world, disasters are increasing in frequency and severity, predominantly due to climate change, and their economic and social impact is predicted to reach unprecedented levels within the next four decades. As the threat of disaster intensifies, disaster philanthropy must evolve radically in order for communities and economies to thrive.

The private sector is uniquely positioned to apply agility, expertise, and resources to the problem, and thus strengthen the safety and well-being of generations to come.

“The Future of Disaster Philanthropy,” a GlobalGiving white paper produced as part of The Conference Board’s “Giving Thoughts” series, examines the future of corporate disaster philanthropy in the age of climate change. Download your copy of the paper here.
