The COVID-19 global pandemic defined 2020, and it will continue to impact much of the world in the foreseeable future. How did grantmakers and donors respond as communities worldwide – especially Black, Indigenous and people of color as well as other populations that have been systemically marginalized and underserved – struggled amid the pandemic’s impact on livelihoods, health, education and more?
In August 2020, the Center for Disaster Philanthropy (CDP) and Candid released Philanthropy and COVID-19 in the First Half of 2020. On March 3, 2021, CDP and Candid will release an updated report examining a year of disaster giving to the worst pandemic in over 100 years.
CDP is hosting a webinar on Thursday, March 11, 2021 at 2 p.m. ET/11 a.m. PT to share key findings from the report including how much funders gave, who they gave to and what issues they supported. Two philanthropic experts will reflect on the report and share what they have learned through their own work. The panel will also address what funders should be doing as we move into year two of giving in this crisis.
