What a great post. This is a real eye opener to me. I studied at the University of Concepcion 40 years ago(!), and my first reaction was where do I write a check. My philanthropy will wait until things settle down, and I'll contact the University directly to see if they want some help, or when Chile informs the public where they want support to go.

Very good points. I might suggest a similar discussion from a marketing point of view at blog.grace-npc.com that has been looking at effectiveness and transparency of groups in Haiti.
For what its worth...

Terrific post, thank you for the information that I'm passing along! Even working for a nonprofit, I still had some misconceptions on disaster giving, so this was very helpful.
