Join us for a webinar conversation around disaster preparedness, response and recovery. We will hear from Nancy Beers from the Center for Disaster Philanthropy’s Midwest Early Recovery Fund about the impact of the 2019 Midwest Floods and the likelihood of 2020 flooding in our region.

Finally, ICoF members who participate in The Funders’ Network’s Philanthropic Preparedness, Resiliency and Emergency Partnership (PPREP) cohort will share about the grant projects they are implementing in their regions.
