The Greater New York PreResponder Campaign aimed to improve outcomes during times of disaster through upfront investments in community preparedness and increased organizational capacity.
As disasters increase in intensity and frequency across the country, the need for Red Cross services continues to grow.
Today, the Red Cross is making significant investments in community preparedness and organizational capacity nationwide to meet that need.
The widespread adoption of capacity building and proactive disaster relief funding strategies underscores the philanthropic savvy of our PreResponder Partners as early adopters. It also highlights New York’s role as a thought leader within the American Red Cross and in disaster relief.
To all our PreResponder partners: THANK YOU. Your commitment to your fellow New Yorkers and to the humanitarian mission of the American Red Cross shows how strategic, philanthropic partnerships can drive programmatic change. Your leadership has set the table for continued success as we expand this vision to adapt mission delivery in communities down the street, across the country, and around the world.
