Helping After Disasters

At Arabella, we’ve helped hundreds of philanthropists give wisely in the wake of disasters over the past decade, both as an advisor to our clients and as a co-founder of the Center for Disaster Philanthropy (to which Facebook recently directed donors during Hurricane Harvey).

Arabella’s phones light up whenever a disaster occurs. The impulse to give back is strong and always provides a bright spot in post-disaster days.

We hope these tips will help all donors navigate these important giving decisions.
