Philanthropy's Response to the Coronavirus Outbreak

Monday, March 2, 2020
  

As the impact of the coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic continues to unfold, philanthropy is mobilizing to support a coordinated response among funders as well as with key public and government agencies. We have assembled some resources below for funders and partners interested in learning more about philanthropic response efforts currently underway. We will continue to monitor developments and share relevant news and resources on emerging opportunities for philanthropy to take action. If you have any information you think would be useful to share, please contact Amy Seasholtz.

Philanthropy Network COVID-19 Funder Briefings
Beginning at the onset of the pandemic, Philanthropy Network hosted weekly (and then bi-weekly) briefings to provide an opportunity for funders to update each other on new and existing COVID-19 funding efforts in the five-county region, share what they were hearing from grantees and community partners and steps they were taking to respond, and explore opportunities for collaboration.

We concluded this series of briefings on September 2, 2020, and are taking a short pause to rethink our approach and determine the best format for keeping regional funders connected and informed about the ongoing effects of COVID-19 and philanthropy’s response. As we move into the next phase of the pandemic, Philanthropy Network remains committed to convening members and key partners to share important news, updates and collective action opportunities to address the widespread impact of COVID-19 and emergent issues in the region.

To everyone who joined the briefings, espeically those who served as presenters, our sincere thanks for your interest and engagement, and for all you are doing to keep our region strong and resilient as we find our way through and beyond this crisis.
