Coffee Talk: COVID-19 Concerns in Grantmaking (Session 2)

April 2, 2020 Aaron Spevacek

Foundant has been closely tracking the global private philanthropic response to COVID-19 through news stories, public resources, and conversations with our clients. Although the response to COVID-19 has taken on familiar patterns for funders and recipients, the response affects clients in different ways than we have seen in the past.

During this second session around COVID-19 Concerns for Grantmakers, we discuss:

  • What needs are you seeing that you might not have expected? Are there needs you are hearing about from grantees that haven’t hit the news yet?
  • How are you supporting current grantees?
  • How are you evaluating opportunities from new grantees?

Watch this on-demand webinar to hear how your peers are tackling issues around COVID-19 in their grantmaking.
