With COVID-19 there seem to be more questions than answers, particularly for funders who want to respond effectively and efficiently. The Council is a co-sponsor of the COVID-19 webinar series from the Center for Disaster Philanthropy (CDP), which brings expert panelists together to address some of the most pressing issues, including getting money out the door quickly, supporting vulnerable populations and investing in local communities.
The COVID-19 pandemic is a global disaster, but ultimately, every disaster begins and ends locally. CDP's third COVID-19 Series webinar on Tuesday, May 12 at 2 p.m. ET explored place-based grantmaking and the importance of strengthening local communities and organizations to create a new philanthropic and nonprofit landscape, focused on recovery, that prioritizes equity, partnership and collaboration.
