Hurricane Harvey Database & Resources

Hurricane Harvey Database & Resources

Publication date: 
September, 2017

Hurricane Harvey devastated communities large and small throughout the Gulf Coast and Central Texas. In response to many members requesting to better understand current funding efforts and needs throughout the region, Philanthropy Southwest created a funders' database to provide access to on-going relief and recovery grantmaking data. The goal is to help funders learn about efforts and potential opportunities for future investment. To reach this goal, Philanthropy Southwest asked member and nonmember funders to share their grantmaking data regarding Hurricane Harvey. The database is only accessible to funders.
