Nonprofit Basics: Charitable Support for Individuals Affected by a Disaster
Welcome to EO Radio Show – Your Nonprofit Legal Resource. This Nonprofit Basics episode addresses some common charitable questions that come up in the immediate aftermath of disasters: earthquakes, hurricanes, wildfires, pandemics, terrorist attacks, and wars.
Generous Americans look for immediate ways to create new organizations or charitable programs to support those affected by fundraising, direct service, or financial or material support. This episode focuses on distinguishing between charitable disaster relief for a charitable class, as compared to private gifts to a specific individual. A relief effort for a charitable class can be funded from a charity or a foundation.
