Amid the rising health concerns regarding the COVID-19 global pandemic and the effect the outbreak is having in our own region, we hope you are all taking the necessary steps to stay safe and healthy.  As this unpredictable situation continues to unfold, Philanthropy Network Greater Philadelphia will be hosting weekly COVID-19 funder briefings. These briefings are open to all funders in the Greater Philadelphia region.

These calls will provide an opportunity for funders to update each other on the rapidly developing effects of COVID-19 in the five-county region, share what you're hearing about the needs in the community and steps you are taking to respond, and explore opportunities for collaboration.
