At Charity Navigator, we know Americans are incredibly generous, especially when a crisis occurs. For example, after the September 11 terrorist attacks Americans donated over $2 billion and when the tsunami crashed ashore in Southeast Asia, the day after Christmas in 2004, American donors contributed $1.54 billion. Even more impressive was the philanthropic response to Hurricane Katrina when Americans gave $6.5 billion --- breaking all previous records of disaster-related giving.

When natural disasters strike and new societal concerns emerge, Charity Navigator will use this portion of our site to spotlight charities dealing with these issues to help you give generously and with confidence.
