For the past two years, TFN and the Center for Disaster Philanthropy have been involved in an exciting regional effort to strengthen community foundations in their knowledge of disasters and to empower their leadership in this arena.

The Philanthropic Preparedness, Resiliency & Emergency Partnership (PPREP) program is directed at seventeen community foundations from a ten-state area in the Midwest, along the Missouri River. This year, PPREP welcomes additional community foundations from the area to the program, with the continuing support of the Margaret A. Cargill Foundation.

Kimberlee Maphis-Early, senior associate at the Center for Disaster Philanthropy, shares some of the practical resources PPREP provides in this CDP blog post.
