The impact of the COVID-19 outbreak is far reaching, including major implications for non-profits and the communities that they serve. Philanthropy has an important role to play in supporting their non-profit partners during this challenging time in which there will be an increase in demand for their services.
Since March 16th, NCG has been hosting funders coordination meetings (via Zoom) every Monday from 11:00 am - 12:00 noon. During these calls, participants will heard from other local funders on what they see their role is and share about specific needs they are hearing about in the community. This will be followed by a discussion for all participants about how they can coordinate their strategies and funding in response to the pandemic, whether it be through supporting the social safety net, building nonprofit resiliency, coordinating cross-sector collaboration, and grantmaking strategies.
This call will focused on healthcare. Participants will hear broadly of the emerging challenges experienced by public health departments and the health care system, and will discuss how philanthropy can respond in the short term, while also advancing long term goals of increasing health equity and resiliency in the system.
