About

Disaster Accountability Project (DAP), an organization founded after Hurricane Katrina, is seeking new Board members!

In particular, we are very interested in recruiting a new member with a corporate philanthropy or CSR background.

DAP is the only independent watchdog of disaster relief and humanitarian aid and our focus is both U.S. and global.

We launched SmartResponse.org, a new game-changing platform that will maximize the impact of relief by helping donors identify the groups that have the greatest capacity to help after disasters. If the most transparent and deserving organizations raise more, aid efforts will be more effective and reach those in greatest need.

We are now reaching out to civil society organizations in disaster vulnerable states and countries around the world.
We are also reaching out to CSR and Foundations so they might utilize this valuable resource.

DAP's work receives frequent media coverage:
