Family Philanthropy’s Response to COVID-19

COVID-19 poses an existential threat to the lives of millions and communities across the globe. There are many unknowns at this point; yet as the world waits, giving families are searching for ways to help and provide support. Grantee communities who were at risk before COVID-19 will now be faced with additional social and economic consequences, and service providers will have their own challenges. How should philanthropy focus its giving and attention during a global crisis? How do families support the health of their grantees and surrounding communities while working to keep nonprofits financially resilient in the midst of disruption? In this webinar, hear from sector leaders who will discuss the long-term philanthropic response to the crisis, how to support grantees with an equity lens, and ways that funders can bolster the long-term financial and organizational health of the sector.
