January 5, 2011: One Year Follow Up Report on the Transparency of Relief Organizations Responding to the 2010 Haiti Earthquake

Executive Summary

This report seeks to:
(1) Determine whether 196 organizations that solicited donations for Haiti disaster relief produced regular, factual reports on their activities; and, if so (2) How comprehensive, frequent, factual, and publicly accessible such reports were. (3) Determine how much money has been raised for Haiti relief, how much of that has been spent, and on what (i.e., healthcare, food, clean water, etc.).

Through this report, DAP aims to promote accountability and transparency by 1) highlighting relief organizations that provide the public complete and detailed situation/activity reports and 2) identifying those relief organizations that do not release situation reports to the public or publish situation reports infrequently or include little concrete factual information.
