The Center for Disaster Philanthropy leverages the power of philanthropy to mobilize a full range of resources that strengthen communities’ ability to withstand disasters and recover equitably when they occur. It manages domestic and international disaster funds on behalf of corporations, foundations and individuals through targeted, holistic and localized grantmaking.
Through CDP, donors can support rebuilding stronger communities affected by wildfires, hurricanes, COVID-19 and other disasters. Some of our current active funds include:
CDP also provides expert advice and educational resources to donors and foundations so they can pursue their own high-impact disaster giving.

About the CDP COVID-19 Response Fund
In March 2020, we launched the CDP COVID-19 Response Fund to support containment, response and recovery for those most affected by the global pandemic and first responders.
The CDP COVID-19 Response Fund is prioritizing support for nonprofit organizations that are working directly to respond to the pandemic among vulnerable populations to help build their capacity to address the most pressing needs. These include social service organizations focused on supporting low-income households, small businesses, immigrants, refugees, Native Americans and Alaska Natives, older adults, people with disabilities, and other communities vulnerable to the physical health, mental health and economic impacts of the pandemic.
As of November 17, 2020, CDP has awarded a total of $19.4 million in grants to 133 organizations in the U.S. and worldwide. A list of all grantees is available at https://disasterphilanthropy.org/cdp-fund/cdp-covid-19-response-fund/.
