From Relief to Resilience: How Philanthropy, Nonprofits and Volunteers

Bridge the Gap between Crisis and Sustainability




View theme and call for participation > 

Over the last few years, citizens around the globe have faced a litany of challenging crises. The list seems to go on and on: natural disasters in the form of hurricanes, droughts, and fires; increased threats to civil society even in established democracies like the United States; the political instability of Brexit; refugee crises; increasing climate change; and domestic and international terrorism. Many communities have suffered and governments have often fallen short of promises. In this context, nonprofit organizations, philanthropy, and voluntarism are more important than ever, but how best to carry out this vital work? And how can social sector organizations overcome the challenges of collaboration and coordination to jointly contribute to community resilience? For the 2018 conference, ARNOVA will shine a light on efforts to build sustainable and resilient communities around the globe in the midst of ongoing challenges.
