COVID-19 Coronavirus: How Philanthropy Can Respond

March 5, 2020, 11:00am PST

The COVID-19 coronavirus is getting closer to being named a pandemic and countries around the world are taking steps to prepare. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have stated that it is not a matter of if, but when the virus will spread across the United States. Now is the time for philanthropy to begin planning how it will respond and how it will invest in actions to support communities.

Join us for this webinar hosted by The Center for Disaster Philanthropy (CDP), with generous support from The UPS Foundation, to discuss how philanthropy can respond and what the most likely needs will be at each stage of the pandemic.
