Natural disasters and private donations to NGOs: the effects of being present after the tsunami in the Indian ocean


Kim, Youngwan; Nunnenkamp, Peter; Bagchi, Chandreyee (2014). Natural disasters and private donations to NGOs: the effects of being present after the tsunami in the Indian ocean. Kiel Working Paper 1890, Kiel Institute for the World Economy.

Abstract

NGOs are widely perceived to raise their flag in humanitarian hot-spots with strong media presence in order to attract higher private donations. We assess this hypothesis by comparing the changes in donations between US-based NGOs with and without activities in the four countries most affected by the tsunami in the Indian Ocean in 2004. Performing a difference-in-difference-in-differences (DDD) approach, we find only weak indications that private donors systematically and strongly preferred active over inactive NGOs.
