The global COVID-19 pandemic is impacting us all in different ways. To help us better understand the effects of coronavirus on our sector, we have developed a short survey to find out how the evolving health crisis is influencing the work of our Funder members.
We invite all our Funder members to complete the survey. The results will help us understand how the COVID-19 context is impacting our grant-making and thinking. This quick survey can be taken anonymously and should take less than 10 minutes to complete.
The preliminary results show:
- Over 86 per cent of funders are changing or adapting their granting and operating approaches in response to COVID-19
- Over 62 per cent of funders are granting to new partners during this time
- 50 per cent of funders are keeping their granting levels the same, 40 per cent are increasing and 10 per cent decreasing
- 25 per cent of funders are either considering or have already committed to providing loans or other social finance options from capital
