The response of philanthropic organisations around the world to the pandemic has contributed enormously to addressing the health and humanitarian crises. Not only have foundations supported the response, they have also assisted their partners to reinvent themselves to deliver services during and after Covid-19.

They’ve done this through financial and non-financial support as well as by adjusting their own giving practices, which have in many cases become more flexible, participatory and responsive.
