Since Typhoon Haiyan struck the Philippines on Monday, regional associations have been coordinating responses by their member foundations and sharing information about the latest resources.
One of the largest storms in recorded history, over 600,000 people have been displaced by the storm, with an estimated death toll of 10,000.
Given the magnitude of the devastation and tireless ongoing recovery efforts, we’d like to share some of the best resources we’ve seen shared across our network. We will update this list as additional resources become available.
For information about how to help in your region, please visit these websites:
- Associated Grantmakers
- Connecticut Council for Philanthropy
- Donors Forum (IL)
- Minnesota Council of Foundations
Forum members seeking more information on disaster grantmaking, can find additional resources on the Forum’s Disaster Planning and Recovery page (login required).
CENTER FOR DISASTER PHILANTHROPY
The Center for Disaster Philanthropy (CDP) is the go-to resource for philanthropists looking to help when disaster strikes. They will be sharing information that they collect and offering unique analysis of the storm’s impact on their website at its Super Typhoon Haiyan hub.
The CDP has also established the CDP Typhoon Haiyan Recovery Fund as well as a hotline for strategic philanthropic advice/assistance at (206) 972-0187.
