I. Project Information
A. Organization Overview
The Center for Disaster Philanthropy (CDP) is the only full-time national resource dedicated to helping donors maximize their impact by making more intentional disaster-related giving decisions.
With the increasing frequency and intensity of disasters comes the critical need for knowing when and how to respond effectively. CDP’s innovative strategies advance donors’ values, increase the impact of their contributions, meet the needs of vulnerable populations and ultimately, strengthen their communities.
CDP is guided by a Board of Directors and an Advisory Council. We also partner with several organizations and work in concert with our clients and funders. Our eighteen-person staff is located across the United States and Canada.
CDP’s goal is to transform disaster giving by providing timely and thoughtful strategies to increase donors’ impact during domestic and global disasters and humanitarian crises.
With an emphasis on medium- to long-term recovery, CDP’s work:
Disaster recovery is the process of improving individual, family and community resiliency after the occurrence of a disaster. Recovery is not only about the restoration of structures, systems and services – although they are critical. A successful recovery is also about individuals and families being able to rebound from their losses and sustain their physical, social, economic, mental, emotional and spiritual well-being.
B. Description of Project
As CDP has grown over the past ten years, we have added systems as needs arose. Some systems were added strategically, while others were added on an ad-hoc basis. We are currently in need of a systems expert who can provide our mission-driven organization with a technology assessment. As part of this work, the vendor will look across all the platforms that CDP uses, assess their functionality for CDP purposes, determine if we are fully utilizing each platform, assess the financial cost versus value of each platform and recommend options for changing or streamlining the platforms we use. We envision the following steps to accomplish this goal:
