Get the Latest on Disaster Preparedness

Whether it's an earthquake, wildfire, hurricane, or human-caused calamity, a disaster can seriously impact your organization's operations.

TechSoup and the Center for Disaster Philanthropy have come out with the latest edition of our guide to preparing for disasters: The Resilient Organization. This year, it takes the form of three separate and complementary guides:

  • A Guide to Nonprofit Disaster Preparedness: Learn the four steps to get your organization ready for whatever comes its way.
  • A Guide to Nonprofit Disaster Recovery: After a disaster has occurred, see how to activate your recovery plan, develop the technology triage list, and support your staff.
  • A Guide to Disaster Preparedness for Your Staff and Volunteers: With this, you can provide your staff with guidance on how to prepare a family plan and put together an emergency supply kit.

With a thoughtful plan, your organization can become more resilient and better able not only to withstand future disasters but also to help respond to them. And while disasters are generally regarded in a negative light, they can actually present opportunities for disaster-resilient nonprofits to grow and even expand their service offerings.
