Coordinated by the Center for Disaster Philanthropy and co-sponsored by the Council on Foundations, this webinar will examine what is transpiring in communities impacted by Hurricane Dorian, from the Bahamas to the eastern coastline. As well, an understanding of the scope of support and resources available within a philanthropic response will be explored. Speakers will provide context to the latest needs on the ground after assessments are known and can be conveyed. 

Panelists will detail the current challenges, effective approaches and how best to support the unique needs of small islands in recovery. CDP President and CEO Robert G. Ottenhoff will moderate the discussion.


CDP launched the 2019 Atlantic Hurricane Season Recovery Fund in response to the needs that will arise following Hurricane Dorian and other storms that may hit throughout the Atlantic hurricane season. Details about the fund will be provided during the webinar.

This webinar is provided with generous funding from the UPS Foundation and is co-sponsored by the Council on Foundations, the Funders’ Network for Smart Growth and Livable Communities and the Southeastern Council of Foundations.
