Community-Based Fundraising for Disaster Preparedness

In the wake of the September 11, 2001 attacks, the inadequacies of America’s disaster preparedness infrastructure became a huge concern. Emergency rooms were not equipped with the medications, Hazmat suits or radiation detectors necessary to respond to a biological or chemical terrorism attack.

Working with a local community group, we created a pilot program of community-based fundraising for emergency preparedness for Brooklyn-based Long Island College Hospital, to raise awareness and funds for their disaster preparedness program at the emergency room level. Through publicity and local fundraising, we raised $50,000, enabling the hospital to buy items off- budget items: special drugs for chemical exposure, Hazmat suits, and a portable radiation detector.

Community Solutions for Care-giving

ShareTheCaregiving — a small non-profit organization — whose mission is to “change the paradigm of long term care in the US” by promoting a successful model of community-based caregiving called Share The Care™ — faced huge challenges in funding.

We worked to reach out to organizations from the Yale School of Management to NYC agencies to obtain free strategic planning and low-cost back-office management.
