The Ebola crisis is not prompting as large of a response from donors as other recent disasters. The American Red Cross, for example, received $2.8 million from Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen, but only about $100,000 in Ebola-related gifts from other donors. By comparison, the Red Cross received more than $85 million in response to Typhoon Haiyan.
