Charities Responding to the COVID-19 Pandemic
Nonprofits are the backbone of our communities – some more visible than others in their impact and the needs they meet. While COVID-19, otherwise known as the coronavirus, is affecting everyone, nonprofits are particularly feeling the pinch as they simultaneously adjust their work environments and policies to ensure the safety and well-being of their staff and volunteers, and demand for their programs and services surges beyond the scale their networks are prepared to handle. The cancelation of fundraising galas and partner development conferences further exacerbates the situation and strains their finances, capacity, and resources. The long-term impact to nonprofits’ bottom-line will affect the capacity of many nonprofits to serve their constituents in the months, and possibly years, to come.
To shed light on the important ways nonprofits are supporting our communities during this health and economic crisis, we asked charities participating in this year’s Campaign if they are responding to the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic — and if so, to describe how in 200 words or less — both now and in the future.
