Apparo’s CEO, Kim Lanphear, spoke with WBTV about the impact of the Coronavirus on nonprofits.
With the call for social distancing and the new rules against gathering in groups, many nonprofits are having to cancel or postpone their biggest fundraisers. They’re also not getting face-to-face time with donors, many of who are already becoming hesitant to give amid foreboding sentiments around the economy.
Beyond the financial aspects, nonprofits are shifting to remote work. This is a new set-up for many, and challenges around properly serving their constituents and working effectively as a team are arising.
Apparo is stepping up to help our nonprofit partners. We started a weekly Virtual Q+A series to help nonprofits navigate remote work. We also have remote volunteer opportunities. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in offering your IT skills.
Donors are encouraged to continue giving to charitable organizations, which will be needed more than ever as the full effects of the virus become apparent.
