Webinar: How Philanthropy Can Act to Stop the Ebola Crisis @ Webinar
Oct 2 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm

The CDC estimates that the number of Ebola cases could reach 1.4 million within just four months, in a worst-case scenario. It is a potential catastrophe of stunning proportions – but it is also a disease outbreak that can be contained with swift, coordinated international coordination among governments, NGOs and communities.

The crisis is not one that only affects Liberia, Sierra Leone, Guinea and Nigeria. What can and should Americans be doing to prepare for and to address the implications of this crisis? How will current funding be used, and what are the funding gaps?

To answer these and other questions, the Center for Disaster Philanthropy and Philanthropy New York, in cooperation with the Council on Foundations and the Forum of Regional Associations of Grantmakers, is hosting a webinar: “How Philanthropy Can Act to Stop the Ebola Crisis.”

“Grassroots Disaster Response During Superstorm Sandy: Successes, Failures and Opportunities”
Oct 14 @ 1:30 pm – 3:30 pm

Tens of thousands of regular New Yorkers without any disaster relief experience participated in Superstorm Sandy response efforts via ad hoc, self-organized groups. These groups performed a wide range of activities: acquiring and distributing supplies, mucking out homes, canvassing for needs and collecting real-time information about the situation on the ground in the hardest hit areas. During this talk, Mr. Balkind will explain how some of these efforts were organized, where they succeeded, where they failed, and how institutional relief organizations and government agencies can collaborate with them to make New York City a more resilient place. Please contact Landy Familia (landy.defamilia@jjay.cuny.edu) to RSVP and for further information at 646-557-4430.
