Is your organization looking to help Latin American and Caribbean communities rebuild and restart local economies after a disaster?
In our experience, local grassroots organizations are the best and sometimes only organizations to address their communities’ immediate and long-term needs after a crisis. Our Partnership for Disaster Recovery and Resilience lets you invest directly in recovery efforts by these organizations, even if you have limited grantmaking capacity or a limited footprint in the affected areas.
With our vast network of local partners, agile funding model, and 50+ years of experience, we know how to quickly direct financial and technical resources to where they’ll have the most impact. After the 2017 earthquakes in Mexico, we partnered with the C.S. Mott Foundation and several U.S. and Mexican foundations and nonprofits to mobilize $4.1 million to support reconstruction in affected communities via partnerships with 40 community philanthropy organizations.
Currently, we are supporting the medium-term recovery and long-term resilience efforts in the communities most severely impacted by Hurricanes Eta and Iota, which hit Central America and Southern Mexico in November 2020.
We welcome other funders to partner with us.
