COVID-19 Hardship Microgrants Initiative

A microproject by GlobalGiving
COVID-19 Hardship Microgrants Initiative

Summary

Many nonprofits in the GlobalGiving community are struggling due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Programming and revenue streams have been drastically altered in response to social distancing, office closures, and other necessary safety measures. Donations to this initiative will help nonprofits continue to operate and fulfill their missions during this difficult time.

Challenge

Some nonprofits have been forced to cancel galas and other critical fundraising events many months in the making. Others need to quickly find programming alternatives as classrooms, community spaces, and other options are shut down.

Solution

In recognition of this period of hardship, GlobalGiving is making $1,000 microgrants to at least 100 vetted nonprofit partners in our community who tell us they need it. We'll trust that nonprofits will put the money, however inadequate, to good use. They know what their communities need right now better than anyone else. Your donation will enable GlobalGiving to expand this microgrants initiative.

Long-Term Impact

Too often, nonprofits operate on shoestring budgets, and an economic event of this scale can be devastating to their long-term sustainability. Your donation today can relieve hardship and help a nonprofit continue its mission in this challenging time for all of us.
