Learn about the role of philanthropy and the need for a diverse funding stream in the aftermath of a natural disaster. On today’s special program, Karen Karp of Karp Resources and Erin Fairbanks help address that question in the context of reviving The Rockaways community. They are joined by a Trustee of a NYC-based Family Foundation and Rick Luftglass, Executive Director of Laurie M. Tisch Illumination Fund, who talk about the work they are doing to help The Rockaways recover post-Sandy. What are some of the needs in the community? How can we ensure all spaces in the community are being serviced? What are the needs on the ground? Tune in and get an insightful look on philanthropy, community building and business relief in a post-disaster setting. This program was sponsored by The International Culinary Center.

“People who are living on the margins are going to be tilted into high-need areas in the wake of disaster.” [13:20]
