Philanthropy and COVID-19: Examining Two Years of Giving and What’s Next

Candid and the Center for Disaster Philanthropy (CDP) are releasing a report "Philanthropy and COVID-19: Examining two years of giving" to see how philanthropy has responded to the pandemic. In partnership with the Council on Foundations, CDP, and Candid are pleased to present a webinar to highlight the key learnings and provide recommendations for funders as the world continues to struggle with the impact of COVID-19. 

Key questions to be addressed include: 

  • How have funders - in the U.S. and globally - repsonded financially to the pandemic?
  • What are the trends in giving and how have they changed over time?
  • What do funders need to focus on in the next few years? 
  • What are the trends in grantmaking practices that have come in response to the pandemic?
