Giving during a crisis can often feel rushed. You see an overwhelming need and want to take action. But granting during these pivotal times should be done in a thoughtful way. To ensure your granting is aligned with your long-term goals, check-in with your charitable plan and decide how disaster relief plays into that plan. If you’ve realized that disaster relief was not part of your charitable planning, it’s not too late. Plans can be reviewed and edited to include disaster-relief support.

Which phase will you support?
If the past is any indication of the future, in times of greatest need, we know your instinct is to support the charities – both locally and globally – that are making the biggest impact as quickly as possible. And our instinct is to help you.
Because disasters catch us by surprise, a sudden crisis can leave communities without immediate support. Recurring grants ensure the charities you support have the funds to react to a disaster right away. Review the graphic provided to see the support most often needed during each disaster phase. This may help guide your giving decisions as you review your charitable plan.
