Things are incredibly strange and scary right now.
Everything seems uncertain, our routines, have been upended, and on top of it all most of us are worried about the wellbeing of our organizations as well.
As you probably know, most of my clients and readers come from nonprofits in the arts and culture sector and right now, most of them are closed.
They have closed their doors and either canceled or postponed events and programming because it was the right thing to do for the health and safety of their staff and their patrons.
Yes, it was the right thing to do. But it certainly isn't the easy thing to do. I know most of you are worried about your staff, your contractors, your artists, and whether or not you can financially weather this storm. There are lots of unanswered questions and for many, there's no instruction manual on how to handle it. I have been fielding calls and emails from frantic clients for about 2 weeks now, helping them to create strategies that will guide them through this time of crisis.
In order to better help, I have created a document with grant opportunities, guidance, and FAQs to help nonprofits navigate through this tricky time. I think it can help you, too, so I'm going to make sure you have access to it just like my regular, paid clients. Because hey…we're all in this together.
I say you'll have “access” to it because this is a living document that I continue to update everyday so that it always has the most current information on grants, suggested responses to different facets of this emergency, etc. If you bookmark the link below you'll be able to open it anytime you like and always have access to the latest version with all the updates. Of course, if you would prefer a static copy you can always download one from that link or download the document as it stands today by clicking here.
