January 12, 2023, 2:00 pm Eastern
Cosponsored by Center for Disaster Philanthropy, Giving Compass, PEAK Grantmaking, and Philanthropy New York
As we begin year four of coping with the implications of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Center for Disaster Philanthropy (CDP) hosted a webinar to help grantmakers consider how to embed ongoing pandemic responses within their normal operations. Moderated by CDP’s President and CEO, Patty McIlreavy, the panel discussed how COVID-19 changed the giving landscape over the past three years and explored future needs. Speakers discussed the difficult nature of the intersection of COVID-19 with disasters and complex humanitarian emergencies, as well as the positive trends that emerged because of the high needs stemming from the pandemic. They also explored the damage that COVID-19 wrought beyond the immediate morbidity and mortality, including poverty, hunger, and mental health.
