LIN's Covid-19 Response Community Fund


The Covid-19 pandemic is affecting all sectors in Vietnam, including grassroots nonprofit organizations. We foresee that local nonprofits will face a challenging year for operations and fundraising in 2020. LIN's Covid-19 Community Fund is set up to support local nonprofits that are directly or indirectly affected by the Covid-19 pandemic. This Community Fund will be distributed to organizations in need and LIN will keep you informed on the organizations which receive the fund.

Due to the nation-wide social distancing regulations and Covid-19's economic and social consequences, many local nonprofits have had to cancel and postpone their planned fundraising and program activities for 2020. Local nonprofits will face a challenging year with their operations and fundraising. In April, LIN issued a survey to our local NPOs and learned that at least 30 nonprofits in our network will be heavily affected with regards to funding and activities in the next six months.


We aim to raise a minimum of 550 million VND (~$25,000) and distribute the funds to at least 10 local nonprofit organizations who require them to ensure survival this year. This includes helping local nonprofits keep their programs running to support the affected people who lost their jobs due to Covid-19, paying salaries to the teachers from the disadvantaged youth development programs, providing necessary training for communities to cope with the pandemic, having a space to work in 6 months

Long-Term Impact

Given the fact that there is a negligible funding reserve for local nonprofits, this urgent funding supports local nonprofits to ensure they can maintain their work in the next 3 to 6 months until the social distancing regulations are lifted and life activities can resume as normal. The fund will enable local nonprofits to continue their fundraising and program activities. This will make sure as many local nonprofits as possible can continue their mission during and after the Covid-19 pandemic.
