About this event

Philanthropy has an important role to play in supporting community preparedness and response to the evolving COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak. Continue the discussion with your peers and join Philanthropy Northwest for a conversation among funders in our region on responding to the outbreak. We will host these calls every Friday morning at 10 am as we navigate this crisis together. Please contact Lyn Hunter to propose an agenda item. 

During these sessions, participants will:

  • Share best practices and discuss actions being taken by philanthropy to address this issue.
  • Discover how funders are supporting current grantees.
  • Explore new opportunities to support our most vulnerable community members.
  • Have the opportunity to engage in a peer discussion facilitated by The Giving Practice in the last 30 minutes.

This week: 

Hear how funders can respond to the COVID-19 crisis in ways that are rooted in racial equity frameworks and make practical, real changes to their grantmaking that directs resources to those who are facing the most dire outcomes of this pandemic.

Eligibility: 

Participation in this meeting is open to philanthropic organizations that currently make grants. This includes corporate giving offices, private and public foundations, community foundations, government grantmakers and CDFI institutions with a philanthropic focus. You do not need to be a Philanthropy Northwest member to participate but do need to represent an organizational philanthropic institution. It is not appropriate for non-profit organizations to join. If you are unsure about your eligibility, please contact Danielle Crystal at dcrystal@philanthropynw.org.
