At this time, what are your organization’s most pressing concerns?

We’re listening to non-profits and gathering questions and concerns as we build resources and FAQs for the sector. While we may not be able to respond directly to all submissions, we are collating responses in order to understand where our advocacy and fact-finding efforts are best spent. Keep an eye on our COVID-19 portal as we continue to add information daily.
