Cause4 Responses to COVID-19

31 March 2020

As you may have seen in the last couple of weeks, Cause4 and Arts Fundraising & Philanthropy have been putting in place programmes to help charities and arts organisations amidst the COVID-19 Pandemic. To ensure you haven’t missed support for your organisation at this time, we’ve created an overview of these programmes. This post will be updated regularly as we release more support. Please get in touch if you have any questions, or if you have any other ideas for how we can support the sector at this time.

How are Funders Helping in the Health Crisis?

30 March 2020

Officially declared a public health emergency on 30th January 2020, the emerging Coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic has already greatly affected the charity sector across the UK. In order to support charities during this crisis, we have collated the responses of major funders from across sectors to create a resource for charities in this uncertain time.

Communicating with donors at a time of crisis

Fundraising might seem impossible right now but donors need to hear from you on good days and bad, writes Michelle Wright.

Covid-19 has impacted on the international community at a speed and scale that very few people could have foreseen. Whilst well run arts organisations will all have appropriate risk and contingency plans in place, a global pandemic was not something that would have been part of most risk registers.

Some days being an entrepreneur seems thankless. With a new start to the decade that comes with some devastating environmental crises and a frightening Covid-19 pandemic that is seeing cities going into lock down, travel cancelled and business events postponed to protect public health, it can feel like everything plus the kitchen sink is being thrown at small businesses, and indeed us all.
