What have we done so far?

The needs from around the world are pouring in, and while many of our community-based partners have been forced to suspend their normal work, they are pivoting to assist with hygiene and education to keep children and communities safe. We’ve been able to assist many of these local organizations, but needs exceed our resources. To help raise additional funds for our partners, we have launched this GlobalGiving project, as well as an Emergency Response Fund

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to unfold, over the past two weeks GFC has:

  • Heard from more than 40 community-based partners
  • Received requests for about $100,000 in support, with more expected every day
  • Approved $47,000 in emergency grants to partners, and we know that the needs will grow

Below are a few examples of the types of grassroots responses GFC is supporting: 

  • Hygiene supplies and personal protection equipment for children and families
  • Supplemental food and nutrition for families facing loss of income
  • Community education and door-to-door campaigns for disease prevention and to dispel myths
  • Radio programs and social media campaigns to raise awareness and share accurate information
  • Online and telephonic counseling services

GFC’s global grantmaking mechanism is well placed to quickly distribute funds to vetted organizations. Your support is critical to helping provide the immediate, on-the-ground resources they need.
