Resources for COVID-19 relief

In mid-March, as communities locked down to slow the spread of COVID-19, Candid created a webpage on the philanthropic response to the pandemic. The page summarizes COVID-related funding, provides news items and blog posts for context, and links to Candid Learning webinars to help nonprofits accomplish their missions in a vastly changed world.

It also links to several resources for COVID-19 relief. As the pandemic and its impact persist, we thought it would be helpful to highlight these resources here. Note: Candid does not make grants to nonprofits or individuals. If you are seeking COVID-19 relief, please refer to the resources below.

Relief for nonprofits, individuals, artists, and small businesses

  • Candid Learning Knowledge base article—this article identifies grants for nonprofits, grants for individuals, grants for artists (all disciplines), grants for small businesses, and international aid. We update it as we learn about new resources.

Relief for organizations

  • Funds for COVID-19 relief—as of this morning, this page listed 975 funds. You can filter them by location and search them by keyword. This list automatically updates several times a day.
  • Requests for proposals (RFPs)—as of this morning, this page listed 342 RFPs. You can filter them by location and search them by keyword. This list automatically updates several times a day.
  • Additional resources from other organizations—this page identifies resources curated primarily by global umbrella philanthropy and nonprofit-serving organizations. We update it as we learn about new resources.

A message for funders

As Candid’s Grace Sato noted recently, we cannot identify 85 percent of the organizations slated to receive COVID-19 funding. You can help fill this gap by sharing information about your COVID grantmaking with us. Nearly 200 funders have already done so. Find out who they are.

The time you take to share information about your work will make a difference. It will help identify underserved communities, prevent duplicate efforts, and allow every dollar granted to have maximum impact.
