Responding to Disasters and Crises

During the past several months, our nation has been rocked by numerous natural disasters including hurricanes, forest fires, and earthquakes, and community crises such as the riots in Charlottesville and the recent horrific shooting in Las Vegas. Our hearts are heavy in the wake of these terrible events, but there is hope and healing in the response, many are stepping up to help in short- and long-term efforts. Read about CCP member responses to current disasters >>

For those wishing to help with recovery efforts, CCP has compiled resources for responding to recent disasters and crises >>

Looking ahead, CCP is in conversation with funders about the potential impacts of the disaster in Puerto Rico on Connecticut, including the probable influx of families to the state. Governor Malloy, who recently gave guidance to our school districts said. “We anticipate many families affected by the disaster in Puerto Rico may seek refuge in our state. It is imperative that young children who have been displaced are enrolled in schools immediately and are provided with health and other services necessary to ensure their academic success.” Read the press release >>

Preparing for Disasters and Crises
While these events are not within our control, we can be prepared before disaster strikes. In the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy, the Center for Disaster Philanthropy, in collaboration with the Council of New Jersey Grantmakers and United Philanthropy Forum, created the Disaster Philanthropy Playbook. "The 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." In the Communities in Crisis strategy area, United Way of Western Connecticut and Fairfield County's Community Foundation have contributed their experiences in responding to Sandy Hook.       

Ten Sites Selected for Racial Healing Campus CentersCCP-The-power-of-membership-logo

The Association of American Colleges and Universities selected ten institutions to serve as sites for the first Truth, Racial Healing & Transformation Campus Centers. With generous support from Newman’s Own Foundation and the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, the Association will guide the development of the Campus Centers as part of a multi-year initiative to educate, prepare, and inspire the next generation of leaders to advance justice and build equitable communities.

Through a competitive process, institutions were selected based on their proposals’ ability to create positive narratives about race, identify and examine current realities of race relations in their communities, envision communities without entrenched racial hierarchies, and pinpoint levers for change and key individuals to engage. Each institution will receive an initial award of $30,000 to develop and implement visionary plans that engage and empower campus and community stakeholders to uproot the conscious and unconscious biases and misbeliefs that have exacerbated racial violence and tension in American society. 

In the aftermath of the horrific, heartbreaking events in Charlottesville, we must not be silent. Instead, we must harness our collective intellectual, social, and financial resources to transform words into action,” said Association President Lynn Pasquerella. “We are thrilled to partner with these first ten outstanding institutions on our way to establishing 150 centers across the country to ensure that higher education is playing a leadership role in promoting racial and social justice.” Learn more >>         

New Report Targets High Drug PricesCCP-The-power-of-membership-logo

The Yale Global Health Justice Partnership, in collaboration with the National Physicians Alliance and Universal Health Care Foundation of Connecticut, released a policy paper entitled, “Curbing Unfair Drug Prices: A Primer for States.”

The new report analyzes promising state-level approaches to addressing high and skyrocketing prescription drug prices, providing recommendations to guide policymakers and advocates. It offers a valuable roadmap for Connecticut and other states that are ready to take on the challenge of unaffordable prescription drugs. Read more >>

ALICE Update - Helping ALICE Families Access Good Jobs and Save for the Future CCP-The-power-of-membership-logo

To raise awareness about ALICE among business, community, and government leaders, Connecticut United Ways have published an ALICE Update. This update explores the challenges ALICE (Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed) faces due to low wages and a lack of savings, as well as the work United Ways and organizations throughout the state are doing to help ALICE access good jobs, save for the future and achieve financial stability.

In Connecticut, 27% of households have earnings above the Federal Poverty Level but below a basic cost of living which often results in living paycheck to paycheck. Lack of savings is the financial challenge American families worry about the most. Nationwide, one in three households have no savings, which means that a medical emergency or unexpected car repair has the potential to send them spiraling into poverty.  Read more >>



Teen Safe Driving Video Contest Promotes Safety on the RoadCCP-The-power-of-membership-logo

The Connecticut Department of Motor Vehicles and Travelers recently launched the 10th annual Teen Safe Driving Video contest for high school students. The theme this year is: “Teen Safe Driver: Could This Be You? Every Second Matters.” DMV and Travelers partner each year to raise awareness about safety behind the wheel with the state’s youngest and most inexperienced drivers. The goal is to create peer-to-peer education and influence about developing safe driving habits. Travelers will award up to $26,000 in cash prizes to the winning students and their high schools.

“We fully support the Connecticut DMV’s program that educates teens about the importance of safe driving,” said Michael Klein, executive vice president, and president of Personal Insurance at Travelers. “Teenagers talking to other teenagers about good driving habits can carry more weight, and we hope the contest sparks conversation and encourages young drivers to take precautions behind the wheel.”

A panel of judges comprised of safety advocates, health experts, and state officials will select the winners. Past contest winners can be found on YouTube at: http://www.youtube.com/teensafedriving12. The contest is open to all public, private, and home-schooled high school students in Connecticut. Submissions must be submitted electronically or postmarked no later than December 15, 2017. Learn more >>  

CT Funders on the Issues

Foundations and funders do more than give grants; they often convene stakeholders to discuss issues and solutions to problems in their communities. Here are three upcoming events:

CENSUS 2020: Why an Accurate Count Matters to Philanthropy

Census 2020: Why Philanthropy Counts Webinar >>

OCTOBER 18: 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Join a conversation about why the census matters and the role that philanthropy can play in ensuring a fair and accurate count. Data from the census drive key decisions made by government, business, nonprofits and philanthropy. Unfortunately, the Census has historically missed disproportionate numbers of people of color, immigrants, young children and low-income and rural households. For example, it is estimated that the “undercounted” included about a million children in the 2010 Census. By not being counted, these individuals and communities may not receive needed services and resources that otherwise would be afforded to them based on census data. Although the Census 2020 is three years away, policy and administrative decisions being made now in Washington, DC, and across the country will carry significant implications for census accuracy and outcomes. Learn more about why the census is critical to your work, the communities you care about and how you can be involved in ensuring a fair and accurate count. This event is open to all funders. This program is co-hosted by the United Philanthropy Forum and Funders' Committee for Civic Participation (FCCP). Register >>
