Are you with a community foundation interested in Planning for Disaster Philanthropy?
Contact Amy Swiatek (firstname.lastname@example.org) for information on Philanthropy Colorado’s June 23, 2022 convening. It brings together foundations on the front lines of disaster response in their communities with a focus on wildfire and flood response, recovery and mitigation.
