CORPORATIONS FOR HUMANITY  
 
LEVERAGING PRIVATE-SECTOR EXPERTISE FOR HUMANITARIAN AID
Corporations for Humanity is a unique alliance among private enterprise, Fritz Institute and the humanitarian relief sector. Fritz Institute developed this pioneering initiative to mobilize corporate resources, technology, and expertise for long-term improvement in the delivery of humanitarian aid.

 When a large-scale disaster strikes at home or abroad, corporations typically respond quickly and generously, reaching out to aid agencies to provide financial support, goods and technical skills. But companies are often frustrated by short-term aid relationships. Short-term aid may not effectively leverage corporate resources for long-term benefit to disaster victims. At the same time, the development of longer-term strategic relationships can be costly in time and effort.

 We created Corporations for Humanity to change this state of affairs.

Through Corporations for Humanity, your company can fulfill your commitment to global corporate citizenship in a structured, efficient way that leverages your core competencies. The approach is strategic and operational, with a focus on performance and measurement. The impact is long-term and systemic – not reflexive and stopgap.

A Fritz Institute study found that 60% of people who did not evacuate did not receive outside assistance in the first 48 hours after Hurricane Katrina.
The partnership between International Rescue Committee, Fritz Institute, and private industry is an excellent model to enable the humanitarian sector to benefit from world class methods.
