As unpredictable as large scale disasters are, so are large scale charitable responses difficult to track, but a recent report aims to address that difficulty with interactive real-time updates.
"The largest 1,000 foundations in the United States made $116.9 million in disaster-related grants in 2013, according to a new report, with the Bill & Melinda Gates, Rockefeller, and Margaret A. Cargill foundations topping the list of contributors. Smaller foundations, charities, and international grant makers contributed another $60.1 million.
"Published Thursday by the Center for Disaster Philanthropy and the Foundation Center, the 2015 Measuring the State of Disaster Philanthropy report expands on the inaugural report, released last year."--Megan O'Neil, The Chronicle of Philanthropy
