The COVID-19 pandemic is one of the worst health and economic crises in modern history and it continues to require the best of humanity to overcome. Your donation to this fund will help stop the spread of the virus, including the highly contagious Omicron variant, to protect us all.
This ongoing health crisis, and new COVID variants, threaten everyone's way of life. The pandemic is especially difficult for people with pre-existing medical conditions, older adults, individuals experiencing homelessness, persons with disabilities, refugees and migrants, wage workers, communities of color, and those with inflexible jobs.
Your donation to this fund will help stop the spread of variants such as Omicron around the world and give communities on the front lines of the crisis the resources they need to act quickly and protect the most vulnerable. As the situation evolves, the fund will evolve, too, supporting long-term recovery and education efforts run by local, vetted organizations in the most affected regions. We will work with our partners on the ground to get funds where they're most needed.
We believe that organizations that are deeply rooted in local communities are best positioned to lead long-term plans to stop COVID-19. Your donation to this fund will help build stronger response capacities in communities around the world so that we are all better equipped to face future outbreaks. GlobalGiving will send you regular email updates about how your donation has been put to use.
When a disaster strikes, recovery efforts led by people who live and work in affected communities are often overlooked and underfunded. GlobalGiving is changing this reality. Since 2004, we've been shifting decision-making power to crises-affected communities through trust-based grantmaking and support.
We make it easy, quick, and safe to support people on the ground who understand needs in their communities better than anyone else.
They were there long before the news cameras arrived, and they’ll be there long after the cameras leave. They know how to make their communities more resilient to future disasters, and they’re already hard at work. GlobalGiving puts donations and grants directly into their hands. Because the status quo—which gives the vast majority of funding to a few large organizations—doesn’t make sense.
