Disaster Philanthropy in the time of COVID-19
November 18, 2020
1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
The Center for Disaster Philanthropy (CDP) and Candid released a report that examines philanthropic awards for the coronavirus pandemic from foundations, corporations, grantmaking public charities and high-net-worth individuals from around the globe. With billions of dollars invested in COVID-19 response, the report sheds light on what we can learn about philanthropy’s response to COVID-19 based on data from the first half of 2020.
CDP has also issued grants totaling over $17 million across four of its grantmaking programs. These grants highlight the vulnerable issues facing communities around the world, across the U.S. and particularly here in the Midwest, including disproportionate deaths amongst BIPOC communities, special needs of vulnerable populations especially people who are immigrants, refugees, homeless, undocumented, fleeing violence or working on the frontlines.
