As the coronavirus spreads across the world, we’re all focused on supporting the effort to contain the threat and provide essential medical care. In the United Kingdom alone, there have been more than 225,000 confirmed cases of COVID-19 and more than 30,000 people have died. As in many other regions, schools and some workplaces remain closed in an effort to disrupt transmission of the infection.
As individuals focus on self-isolating and social distancing, the government, nonprofits and healthcare workers are on the frontlines trying to keep everyone healthy and safe. Healthcare workers need supplies, including personal protective equipment and medical testing equipment. The need is especially great in countries without developed healthcare systems. Nonprofits are busy helping local communities cope with the fallout of COVID-19, including an increased demand for food bank support.
Support the pandemic response in the UK and abroad with a giving campaign
You’re probably eager to help, but we know it’s challenging to sort out which national and international charities or nonprofits are doing the most vital work on the ground right now, and which ones to encourage your people to support.
To help you, we created a campaign kit with ready-to-use resources specific to the UK that includes:
- A list of recommended nonprofits, all vetted through the Benevity Causes Portal, to support. We suggest choosing three to six to include in your campaign.
- Templates for a giving opportunity and a News Item.
