Projections indicate that as many as one in four nonprofits may not survive this pandemic’s impacts. Several community leaders stepped up, rapidly establishing new funds to help nonprofits weather the storm and thrive.

Meet some of our most respected funders who bravely faced a myriad of challenges head-on to assess nonprofits’ needs and create new funds for hard-hit nonprofits in a range of sectors.


Participants will learn:

  • New options for funding, priorities, and how to apply
  • Methods of strengthening your nonprofit in the eyes of funders
  • Strategies to develop relationships with foundation leaders
  • How to engage in collaborative advocacy for focused funding
  • The face of future funding for nonprofits in a post-pandemic world
