Disasters Don’t Care About Your Funding Focus

Tuesday, October 7, 2014

You may not fund disaster preparedness, but that won’t matter when the next big earthquake hits the Bay Area. The fact is, disasters are everyone’s problem when they hit.


Because your grantees and the communities they serve will be affected—even your staff and their ability to do grantmaking will be impacted.

Let’s be honest, after will be too late. Funders and grantees need to prepare now.

Here at NCG we’re getting ourselves disaster ready. And with the anniversary of Loma Prieta and the recent earthquake in Napa, we’re presenting members with an opportunity to discuss the role of philanthropy in preparing for, responding to, and mitigating disasters.

Join us at the upcoming NCG program 25 Years After Loma Prieta and Days After Napa: Philanthropy’s Role in Mitigating the Impact of Disaster on the Most Vulnerable on October 30th. Yes, that title is a mouthful, but it’s a meaty topic.

Come learn how all types of funders can prepare, respond, and mitigate disasters.
