One Year Later: How Has COVID-19 Reshaped Philanthropy?

Philanthropy has responded to COVID-19 like no other crisis in recent memory. Through increased giving, reduced restrictions, and a deeper focus on listening to communities and partners, foundations, many of whom signed the Pledge, have stepped up in this moment of crisis. Now, a year later, questions arise as to which of these practices will become the “new normal”, while many still ask what more can be done. Join the Council on Foundations to hear from a range of speakers from different philanthropic organizations on how COVID-19 has reshaped their work and what they think the future entails for philanthropy.
