Over the past week, United Philanthropy Forum has joined other national nonprofit and philanthropy organizations in signing on to two letters sent to Capitol Hill on behalf of nonprofits, relating to proposed COVID-19 economic stimulus package legislation.
In a letter published today in The Chronicle of Philanthropy, Forum President & CEO David Biemesderfer urges funders to continue to be particularly attentive to considerations of equity as they respond to the coronavirus outbreak.
We call on everyone in philanthropy to continue doing all that you can to ensure that our communities and our country address the coronavirus outbreak in ways that are as equitable and fair as possible.
The Forum has created a webpage with a compilation of resources and information by and for PSOs on how to respond to the coronavirus outbreak.
