Open Discussion: MCF Member Responses to Recent Natural Disasters

Monday, October 9, 2017 12:00pm - 1:00pm CDT

Description: August and September have brought a number of exceptionally large natural disasters. While the hurricanes and earthquakes in the news over the past couple of months haven’t hit Minnesota directly, many MCF members have stakeholders that were impacted – employees, grantees, partners, trustees – and our philanthropic community has been quick to respond. 

Given the number of MCF members engaged in efforts related to the most recent disasters, MCF has organized this GoToMeeting call as an opportunity for members to share how they are responding and to ask questions and share resources with one another. Nancy Beers from the Center for Disaster Philanthropy and the two co-chairs of MCF's Disaster Philanthropy Working Group, Holly Sampson and Dan Frank, will serve as resources on the call. Nancy will provide a brief status updates on the recent disasters to kick-off the call, and then we'll open up the space for members to learn and share with one another.

We all know that the initital disaster response and the longer-term focus on recovery are critically important to helping communities get back on their feet. To stay engaged in this discussion over time, we encourage members to join MCF's Disaster Philanthropy Working Group. Please contact Katina Mortensen if you'd like to be added to the group.

This meeting will take place remotely using GoToMeeting.
