Giving Trends in the Wake of Coronavirus

Thursday, August 06, 2020, 12:00pm – 1:00pm EDT

How has giving been affected by the Covid crisis? What can we expect in the year ahead? Will we see a catastrophic decline in giving or will the crisis encourage more philanthropy? What can we learn from giving behavior in other times of contractionary crisis, such as the Great Recession of 2007 – 2009? What can we do to avoid the worst-case scenarios? This program brings together a leading researcher in the overall philanthropy space with JFN-member funders from both private philanthropy and federations for a thoughtful conversation on what we can expect and how we can best change giving practices to accommodate or counter these wider trends.
