Supporting disaster preparedness, relief and long-term recovery.
Disasters are increasing in complexity and duration. While the Hilton Foundation recognizes the need for emergency response funding, we remain committed to ensuring that funds are available for longer-term recovery and building resilient communities. In all of our work in this sector, we emphasize the importance of following internationally accepted standards and best practices.
In June 2018, the Foundation’s board of directors elected to expand the Disaster Relief and Recovery program area. Over the coming months, we will be developing a revised strategy for the next phase of work and plan to announce the new strategy in late 2020.Read more about our approach
