Finances can be very tricky, especially for emergent grassroots relief groups and smaller community-based organizations that aren't set up to raise funds over the internet and aren't prepared to spent funds quickly and in transparent ways.

Organizations that can accept funds over the internet can raise thousands, even millions, of dollars during a disaster event. They can also solicit donations immediately and expand their community of donors.

Organziations that can document precisely where the funds they raised are being spent will be able to sustain fundraising efforts into the recovery phase and beyond.  They can also develop effective funding criteria, enabling them to shape intiatives that emerge in response to the disaster.
