The National Center for Family Philanthropy is dedicated to serving families who give and those that work with them. In response to the COVID-19 crisis, we are offering conversations on topics of interest to all philanthropic families associated with family foundations, donor-advised funds, family offices, and other philanthropic vehicles.

In many ways, the COVID-19 crisis is one of equity. Those who were more at-risk at the beginning of the crisis have fewer safety nets, less support, and deeper challenges, and many nonprofits who are positioned to support these communities face those same barriers. With data now confirming the unequal impact of the virus on vulnerable communities, a comprehensive response requires an examination of the racialized structural and systemic barriers that existed before the crisis and consistently worsen outcomes in this moment. While a rapid response is needed, how can families build an approach for long-term recovery with an equity lens? In this webinar, join panelists for a discussion on framing responses to address the wide-ranging implications of the crisis, embedding an understanding of structural racism in long-term strategy, and how to put equity at the center of COVID-19 relief.
