As the HIV-Aids crisis in the 80’s helped to forge new relationship and understanding between people and agencies, like 9-11, 2001, taught the value of working together in a time of need this pandemic will re-shape nonprofits agency missions, programs, structure and outreach that will come later but now I offer some suggestions for non-profit leaders to weather this pestilence.
It depends on your nonprofit and what you do for that non-profit, are you the CEO, President, Executive Director, or Board President or others. We nonprofits will face new challenges in the weeks ahead. Nonprofits that hold large conferences, conduct in-person fundraising events, or provide training sessions may need to assess your options. Those that provide services to populations who are most at risk of acquiring the virus may be facing unique challenges in serving their communities.
