During the first year of the pandemic, record-breaking philanthropic support was marshalled to combat the COVID-19 pandemic as it affected local, regional, national, and international communities. While we are beginning to see glimmers of hope that the worst impacts of the pandemic may be nearing an end, we know that lasting effects remain, which will need to be addressed. And COVID-19 was by no means the only challenge of the past twelve months.
Currently, there is a lot of retrospection taking place across our communities. Knowing where philanthropic resources have been deployed, what has worked, and what has been less successful will help funders as they develop their long-term philanthropic strategy, and help the nonprofits they seek to support map a way forward. How can donors, philanthropic organizations, and nonprofits prepare for the road ahead?
In this complimentary SSIR Live! webinar, we will explore the ways that philanthropists have responded to the unprecedented events of the past year, what they learned as a result of having to quickly adapt their giving strategies to address rapidly-mounting and desperate need, and how the philanthropic ecosystem – donors and grantees – can continue prepare for what’s next.
We will look at these issues and approaches…
To help us explore learnings and interpret what they might mean for the future, we will be joined by Nicole Taylor, president and CEO of the Silicon Valley Community Foundation (the largest US community foundation), Kim Laughton, president of Schwab Charitable (a leading national donor-advised fund), and Jennifer Alcorn, deputy director, philanthropic partnerships, at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation (which has been on the front lines of pandemic relief globally).
We are a nonprofit too. Donate to Giving Compass to help us guide donors toward practices that advance equity.
