Private U.S. Aid to Tsunami Victims Tops $1 Billion
Fact of the Day

Private philanthropic donations from American donors to tsunami victims in Southeast Asia have exceeded $1 billion. U.S. nonprofit and NGO relief organizations have received gifts and disaster relief reserve funds of about $1.059 billion from individuals, foundations and corporations, according to a report compiled by the Center on Philanthropy at Indiana University. More than $900 million of those funds are from cash contributions, and an additional $117 million from in-kind gifts such as medical supplies, food, blankets, and relief services. These figures do not include any aid delivered or offered by the U.S. government.
