Dear Colleagues

This is an impressive performance. It speaks highly of the well-wishers who have chosen to commit their money to Haiti because of the terrible horror of the earthquake in January.

As an accountant with a long history of being associated with various aspects of relief and development over a period of more than 30 years, I am bothered by the unwillingness of those that have been recipients of donations to address the deep question of accountability. This is more than merely having the right "paperwork" ... and more than merely having a collection of stories and associated images. Accountability requires some elements of good accounting ... some elements of value reporting ... and especially the ability to validate the data and the stories. This is what Community Analytics (CA) has been developed to do ... and will be used as much as possible in Haiti as we go forward.

More than $1 billion is impressive ... too much not to have excellence in accountability

Does anyone know if these numbers are for total revenue (private and public) or only private ?

4. caro2675 - May 14, 2010 at 09:40 am

Hi - The totals only count cash from individuals, foundations, and corporations, not government money. Thank you, Caroline, The Chronicle of Philanthropy

Hi, thanks Caroline.
Do you know where I can find government funds for Haiti ?
Thanks

Do you know if I can find the split between individuals, foundations and corporations ?
Thanks
