    Following a natural disaster, philanthropy plays a vital role in aiding affected communities and can have an equally critical role in building long term community resilience. As private entities, philanthropists can operate with flexibility across sectors and creativity that generates unique contributions across the lifecycle of disasters—from preparedness to recovery. Please join CSIS and the Irene W. and C.B. Pennington Foundation for an on-the-record panel discussion exploring how to move toward more effective disaster philanthropy.

    The CSIS-Pennington Family Foundation Series on Community Resilience has been made possible, in part, with support from Walmart.
