The survey provides a broad perspective on the activities and practices of 9/11-related charities and considers the impact of size and sponsor type on patterns of assistance, sources of support, and timetables for distributing aid. More importantly, it sheds light on some of the planning and operational constraints involved in the delivery of disaster relief and the creative responses and collaborative efforts required to overcome these difficulties and achieve results.Part II documents total contributions raised and distributed by 40 of the largest 9/11 relief and regranting funds.
