Helping philanthropists and charities through coronavirus
Now is a defining moment for charities. The decisions we make now will shape our sector for years to come.
How philanthropists act now will determine how charities are able to tackle this crisis in the short term, their institutional survival in the medium term, and the resilience of our sector to keep serving people in the long term.
Right now, charities still need emergency support. But coronavirus has revealed much about charities and philanthropy, how we work, who we work with, and where we focus, so we need to start thinking about how we rethink and rebuild our sector. However bad the storm, we must not lose sight of where we are heading.
