Why does The Patterson Foundation support this initiative?
Interest in working with the Center for Disaster Philanthropy grew out of The Patterson Foundation's observation that when disasters occur, donors and funders often make emotional decisions rather than decisions based on the best information available. The Center for Disaster Philanthropy helps donors make more thoughtful disaster-related giving decisions and maximize the impact of their gifts.
The Patterson Foundation supports the efforts of the Center for Disaster Philanthropy as it strengthens how people, organizations, and communities come together to be generous following disasters.
