Eyes on Mississippi. Disaster Philanthropy. How do you support communities that have lost everything? Webinar Thurs, March 30th

Poor. Black. Rural. And gone. Most of the communities hit by tornadoes over the weekend share these characteristics. They are also strong, resilient and proud, and urgently need philanthropic support.

We are hosting a webinar, on Thursday, March 30 at 2 p.m. ET, to highlight the recent storms in multiple states, including Texas, Mississippi, Alabama and Georgia, that produced devastating tornadoes. The loss of life was highest in Mississippi, where an EF-4 tornado destroyed multiple communities.

Assistant Vice President in the Division of Academic & Strategic Collaborations at Texas A&M University, Dr. John T. Cooper, Jr., will moderate the discussion.

During the webinar, we will look at the impact of a catastrophic disaster in communities that were already lacking a strong social safety net and infrastructure. What does rebuilding look like when you’re starting nearly from scratch? How do you support communities that have lost everything?

Please register and join us.  

My best,


PS: Automatic closed captioning will be available via Zoom during the webinar. The fully captioned webinar recording will be emailed to everyone who registered.
