The Disaster Philanthropy Playbook website

Developed by the Center for Disaster Philanthropy, the Council of New Jersey Grantmakers, and the Forum of Regional Associations of Grantmakers

The Disaster Philanthropy Playbook is a compilation of philanthropic strategies, best practices and lessons learned that have saved and galvanized local economies, nonprofits, and vulnerable populations from entering into a permanent downward spiral in the wake of a disaster.

Disaster Grantmaking: A Practical Guide for Foundations and Corporations

Developed by the European Foundation Centre and the Council on Foundations

A very clear guide for foundations and corporations on how to be more effective in addressing disasters. The guide describes eight principles of good disaster management. From those principles, it offers practical suggestions, lessons from experience, examples of good and bad practices, and facts and figures.
