In this time of unprecedented challenges, we stand together with our grantees and colleagues across the philanthropic world to offer counsel and support to the individuals, organizations, and communities upended by the COVID-19 pandemic.
While we are working closely with individual grantees to do all we can during this time of need, we hope the following resources may be useful for nonprofits and mission-driven for-profits seeking financial assistance, organizational support, and technical guidance. We thank our nonprofit peers for developing these resources, and will update this page as new information is available. Please stay safe and know that, more than ever, we are committed to supporting our community through the uncertain days ahead.
