As extreme natural events are increasingly affecting our health, livelihoods, and social fabric, how might philanthropic investments be more strategic in building greater community disaster resilience? Since philanthropy cannot do it alone, it requires that the sector aligns with our state government agencies to ensure that philanthropy complements state efforts and strategies.

Northern California Grantmakers invites you to our next quarterly conversation on disaster philanthropy facilitated by Terence Mulligan, CEO of Napa Valley Community Foundation. If you have not read Terence’s previous blog on informed disaster grantmaking principles and practices,The Theory and Practice of Disaster Grantmaking, check it out!
