We’ve compiled the following list of COVID-19 support resources for fundraisers and those in the non-profit sector – organized by public information available at the national, provincial and local levels (and of course some fun stuff too).
Know a great support that’s not on this list? Feel free to contribute and add links to any relevant resources / fun stuff we might have missed. We will do our best to add to this list each week with new information as it becomes available.
Please note that any additions to this list that do not reflect the fundraising and non-profit community, that are inappropriate and do not reflect AFP values, that aim to pitch or market specific for-profit services, that contain false information from unreliable or untrustworthy sources, will be removed.
Please be cognizant of the online content and other sources of information you consume and share with others. It is important that we keep this resource list ‘clean’ of any misinformation and containing only updates from reputable sources.
Not sure whether your addition comes from a reputable source? Try testing it out using the following evaluation process.
What if it’s something I saw on social media? Again, try to ask yourself a few of the above evaluation questions first before sharing. Luckily, Facebook has recently implemented a new fact-checking process to flag posts containing misinformation.
Who can I connect with more about this list? If you have any questions or concerns or other ideas you would like to contribute, please feel free to contact us at email@example.com.
We appreciate all of your input and ongoing support. We are all in this together.
