To assist with disaster management planning among philanthropic organizations, Northern California Grantmakers (NCG) launched the San Francisco Bay Area Disaster Preparedness and Response Initiative. As part of the Initaitive, Putnam Community Investment Consulting (now Putnam Consulting Group), conducted a needs assessment of NCG and Corporate Contributions Roundtable (CCR) members that identified their operational and grantmaking resoruces for disaster management planning and determined how NCG might most effectively support its members in meeting those needs.
