OVC TTAC’s Helping Victims of Mass Violence and Terrorism
OVC TTAC’s Helping Victims of Mass Violence and Terrorism: Planning, Response, Recovery, and Resources Toolkit multimedia web training series continues with an indepth look at the Donation Management protocol. Donation management is a complex process that includes organizing, storing, and disbursing the funds, goods, and services received in response to incidents of mass violence or terrorism.
Lessons learned from previous incidents consistently underscore that all response and recovery efforts are more effective when—
• organizational roles are defined prior to the incident;
• relationships are in place to create a more efficient response and faster recovery; and
• there is a planned and comprehensive donation management strategy that focuses on both the immediate and longer term needs of victims, survivors, and the affected community.
