February 2, 2010

The five-year anniversary of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita are coming up this fall, and to mark the occasion more than 30 organization are gathering in New Orleans next month at a conference called Katrina @ 5: Partners in Philanthropy.
The purpose of the gathering is to explore philanthropy's role as a partner in disaster response, rebuilding, and transformation, and to examine what's worked, what hasn't, and what is yet to be done.
Especially in light of the recent catastrophic earthquake in Haiti, the importance of philanthropy in revitalizing communities that have suffered natural disastersĀ can't be overstated.
