The world has been reeling from the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic for more than a year now. Every element in our society has adjusted, adapted and pivoted in some way, shape or form – including philanthropy.
So, how did donors and grantmakers respond?
To help answer this question, the Center for Disaster Philanthropy has released the Philanthropy and COVID-19 in 2020: Measuring One Year of Giving report.
Created in collaboration Candid, the report documents more than $20 billion in philanthropic funding for COVID-19-related efforts during 2020 and examines who gave, how funding was distributed and what funding looked like. They also identified five ways that grantmakers can leverage their resources to help ensure equitable recovery from the pandemic in the U.S. and worldwide.
They are hosting a webinar on Thursday, March 11, at 2 p.m. ET to explore key findings from the report and discuss ongoing needs. Experts will share what they have learned through their own work and discuss what funders should be doing as we move into year two of giving for the pandemic. NNCG Steering Committee member David Maurrasse is a panelist.
