Corporate Response to the Haitian Earthquake: Update, 1/13/10

The US Chamber of Commerce's Business Civic Leadership Center is tracking the corporate philanthropy response to the earthquake in Haiti here. Other great sources of such information include CSRWire and PRNewswire. Know something about corporate involvement in relief efforts that isn't included on those sites? Please share it in the comments below.

  1. Great round up of resources, Jess. At Liquidnet, we wanted to put in place an immediate response while taking some time to think through possibilities for supporting longer-term rebuilding efforts.

    In the short term within 24 hours of first news of the disaster we set up a $25,000 matching challenge to encourage employees and the general public to give via our trusted partner, GlobalGiving:

    During a disaster like this we know that cash is king so getting money as quickly as possible to the most trusted and effective on-the-ground organizations is key.

    As the relief efforts move from emergency response to long-term recovery we will continue to explore the ways that we can have the biggest impact.

  3. I've found that FedEx's Citizenship Blog is doing a really good job of answering the question: What are you doing to help Hati? often and throughly.
