Nonprofits in the Post Covid Era

Posted by GVT Admin on Jul 26, 2023 11:39:19 AM

It has been three years since the world went into lockdown as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, and nonprofit organizations are facing new challenges and crafting new responses.

  • The nonprofit sector, like most other industry segments, has embraced remote work.
  • Video conference calls with co-workers and clients, once the exception, are now commonplace because of office closures and the shuttering of direct service centers during the pandemic.
  • In 2022, Americans gave an astounding $499 billion to charity with individuals contributing $319 billion while foundations gave an estimated $105 billion.
  • But, perhaps the most significant change to nonprofit operations during the crisis was the willingness of foundations to provide general operating support and unrestricted funding.

Posted by GVT Admin on Dec 16, 2022 10:45:00 AM

If there is one thing that all non-profit organizations will agree on, it is that donors are the backbone of any successful social service organization. Donors enable human services to turn ideas into reality, achieve goals, and work for various societal causes.

However, in recent years, NGOs have faced numerous challenges in attracting and retaining donors. This is due in part to the changing dynamics of the world. And, most importantly, donors are more conscious, aware, and thoughtful of the social services they fund.

It is true that prior to the pandemic nonprofits were already transitioning from analog to more digital donor interactions, fundraising events, and cyber communication with a whole new segment of partners and small contributors. COVID-19, however, shut down nonprofit office communities, paused large fund-raising galas, and isolated the donor community at large from day-to-day interactions at the nonprofit board-level.
