Advice from colleagues for responding to crises

This sidebar presents a series of lessons from families that have made grants during local, national, and family crises. Advice from families includes: pause before acting; don’t put narrow restrictions on grants; and engage people who live and work in the community in planning and implementing responses to the crisis. Talking over each of these points can help your family shape how it responds to crises.
