Event Category 

This webinar is free to members and nonmembers, but registration is required. See website/registration site for details and to log in or create an account. 

Philanthropy is undertaking massive efforts in this country to collaborate and coordinate quickly among various funders, stakeholders and community partners in response to COVID-19—and all without the power of convening in person. 

Foundations, companies, United Ways, and public partners are increasingly engaged in coordinated efforts to identify priority areas, pool funds, and enable informed decision-making across a web of actors and players in this rapidly evolving situation. We will explore how local public, private, philanthropic partnerships are forming and expanding in communities to effectively respond to this complex, global challenge.
