What We Do

The DRI Foundation focuses on sustainable resilience activities over immediate relief with the goal of empowering communities to help themselves.  We pursue our vision of resilient communities worldwide by promoting disaster risk reduction through partnership and education and aiding recovery efforts through fundraising and volunteerism.

Our Focus Areas

Donations After Disasters
We partner with non-profit organizations in communities impacted by disasters and provide grants to help where it is needed most. We also donate supplies to families in need.

We build community awareness for disaster risk reduction and provide access to the skills necessary for preparedness.  The DRI Foundation offers college scholarships, veterans outreach, and small business training.

Resilience and Rebuilding
We engage DRI certified professionals to volunteer in the communities in which we live and work.

Our Featured Programs

Veterans Outreach Program Scholarship

Veterans Outreach Program

Disaster Recovery International (DRI) Foundation is committed to helping our veterans succeed. To do our part, the Foundation has created a Veterans Outreach Program (VOP) to help our Veterans realize their dreams and help both themselves and their respective organizations achieve great success as they transition into the professions of emergency response, crisis management, business continuity and disaster recovery.


Each year the DRI Foundation provides an opportunity for DRI Certified Professionals from around the world to volunteer their skills and abilities to make a positive impact in the communities where DRI International’s annual conference is held.
