Community Connection in Times of Crisis is a virtual gathering for community foundation staff to share their experiences responding to COVID-19 through a community leadership perspective. Together, we explore best practices for bringing our relationships, tools and resources to the table to address this crisis, both in the short-term and in the long-term as our communities begin to recover and rebuild.

Below are the first six meetings we hosted on a weekly schedule. Starting in May, we have moved to a biweekly schedule and will post upcoming webinars on our Events Calendar.

Meeting 6 – Thursday, April 30

On this week’s webinar, we’ll hear about the value of coordinating your response with the public sector, the usefulness of supporting infrastructure providers, and the benefit of finding the right partners. We’ll also discuss the importance of keeping our work rooted in community engagement and accountability, even in a crisis.

Meeting 3 – Thursday, April 9

At our third meeting, we discussed how to align our work with the nonprofit and public sectors, recognizing that this crisis is different from others community foundations may have responded to in the past. We also explored the opportunity for community foundations to weigh in on key policy issues that have been exposed by the pandemic to ensure that they advance racial equity and economic inclusion.
