Fundraising in the Time of the Coronavirus

The coronavirus pandemic has upended the world in a way we have not seen before. While some countries are regaining control over the virus, many are still feeling its full impact. As an individual and an NGO, you have a role to play. Wherever your country finds itself on the curve, you can prepare and plan for impact.

Follow the guidelines of the WHO about quarantine and social distancing. Wash your hands. Stay at home and work from home. Use your time to research and learn what positive role your organization can play in mitigating the impact of the coronavirus pandemic. We hope this course can help with that.
