Donations Management Committee

Committee Chair: Jim Garrett, Presbyterian Disaster Assistance

Vice Chair: Ross Patterson, The Salvation Army

Board Liaison: Patrick Crawford, Feeding America

The Donations Management Committee provides subject matter expertise primarily focused on issues related to unsolicited donations of products, services, and money, but encourages development of relationships between VOAD members and donors. The committee promotes best practices and engagement of VOAD membership with federal, state, local and tribal government, the private sector and the public to maximize the goodwill of donors through planning, education, training, and exercising during all phases of the disaster cycle.
