Regine Webster updates us on the state of disaster philanthropy

On November 7, 2019 the Center for Disaster Philanthropy released its annual "Measuring the State of Disaster Philanthropy: Data to Drive Decisions" report.

The report captures how philanthropists are responding to disasters, and encouraging them to support the full arc of a disaster, including response, recovery, preparedness, mitigation and resiliency.

Tune into this MYD Global episode to learn more about the current state of disaster philanthropy, and what the Center is hoping to do to get more people to invest in mitigation, recovery and resiliency.

In this episode, we speak with Regine Webster, vice president at the Center for Disaster Philanthropy (CDP). Regine brings a keen sense of adventure, discovery and compassion to the fields of philanthropy and humanitarian assistance, helping build bridges between those offering solutions and those in need. Regine served as the founding executive director of CDP, and continues to serve as a trusted resource and philanthropic force. She is also one of only a handful of people in the U.S. who have managed a dedicated disaster portfolio for a foundation, as a program officer, consultant and fellow in the Global Health and Global Development divisions of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. While there, she led the Foundation’s $15 million Emergency Relief portfolio.

Tune in to hear the latest information on where people are donating to help address the entire disaster life cycle.
