Philanthropy through nonprofits is a critical component of relief throughout worldwide humanitarian disasters. Humanitarian disasters are increasing each year, yet a comprehensive time-sensitive model has not been created nor adopted by all nonprofits, or better yet, prior to a disaster. To better understand the benefits and challenges of philanthropy during a humanitarian disaster, a review and analysis of the literature were conducted, and research gaps were identified. The findings of this review indicate that philanthropy during humanitarian disasters is critical to reconstruction and enhancement efforts, and donors are one of the most valuable resources available.
