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.
  • Reflect on the week with peer leaders, facilitated by The Giving Practice.


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. Please do not join this call if you are a nonprofit organization. If you are unsure about your eligibility, please contact Danielle Crystal at
