Center for Disaster Philanthropy

Since 2014, there has been a spike in the number of refugees arriving in Europe who are fleeing countries in conflict. The unprecedented movement of people around the world has created the highest number of displaced persons since World War II.

Making the right decision about how you can best respond to a complex crisis that has been going on for years requires strategic thinking and real world experience. To get you started, the Center for Disaster Philanthropy has developed a short list of things funders can do in the refugee crisis.

In this funding guide, you’ll learn:

  • How to address the refugee crisis through a long-term lens.
  • Why cross-sector funding partnerships are so vital.
  • How local and international organizations are creatively collaborating to help refugees.
  • That small efforts can drive big results when funders focus on local business and community capacity building.
