DRC's End-of-Year Giving Campaign

NOVEMBER 29, 2016

Dear DRC Friends and Alumni,

Today is #GivingTuesday! In the U.S., #GivingTuesday marks the beginning of the “season of giving.” As we near the end of our 53rd year, we honor the spirit of the holiday season to reflect and celebrate another year of successes in research, education and service with many thanks owed to you, our friends, alumni and supporters.

DRC’s mission is threefold: to advance the state of the art in disaster research and its scientifically guided practice; to educate the next generation of disaster science scholars and informed practitioners; and to create, gather, and disseminate disaster knowledge in dynamic and responsive ways. In doing so, we create “the DRC experience” - one in which students advance as scientists and project managers and prepare for responsible positions in academia and in the policy and practice sectors.

As part of this experience, graduate research assistants are collaborators and contributors on papers and presentations. Every year DRC sends students throughout the US and internationally.  They present their research at conferences and workshops and conduct field studies on pressing topics in disaster science.

In order to fulfill this mission, we ask that you make a donation to DRC this giving season. Each week until the end of the year, we will highlight how contributions made to DRC directly support our student-focused mission.

Our year-end goal is to raise $7,500.

​​

​As alumni, we give to DRC because we remember the important role DRC had in shaping our professional development. Coming to partake in the DRC experience as a graduate student or post-doc fellow was the single most important decision in our professional lives. We remember the mentoring and research opportunities and we want to provide the same benefits to future students. 

Help us continue this tradition by making your gift to DRC today.
We are grateful for your generosity.


All the best,

James Kendra & Tricia Wachtendorf
Directors, Disaster Research Center
