Toward More Resilient Futures: Putting Foresight Into Practice



Be part of the solution

Join us in sharing fear-free preparedness



Emergency preparedness is often overlooked in the world of charitable giving. Disaster response, with its drama, flashing lights, and critical needs receives the big press, praise, and promotion. Preparedness, long-positioned by traditional disaster services agencies as the endless acquisition of kits, plans, information, and certifications, isn’t usually a trending topic.  If you believe in shifting the preparedness conversation away from thinking about horrible disasters in the future, and making it about building united, empowered communities that can do what needs to be done,  then you’re in the right place. If you want your legacy to be about transforming preparedness, CARD can help.
