Interim Guidance for Community- and Faith-Based Organizations COVID-19 Response
Did you know the CDC has a page on its website with regularly updated guidance for community and faith-based organizations? You can find it here. The three main steps for charitable organizations include:
Create a plan of action (i.e., emergency operations plans, crisis communication plans)
Act on these action plans (e.g., buddy systems, stay informed with daily updates, communicate frequently),
Follow-up (i.e., evaluate the effectiveness of your emergency operations and communication plans).
Fundraisers, this before-during-after approach is a simple fundraising strategy that can also be applied to digital fundraising right now. What is your new plan of action for online and mobile fundraising during the Coronavirus outbreak? How is that going so far? What is your follow-up strategy? Are you thinking that far ahead yet? Keep in mind as you adjust your fundraising strategy, it’s critical to make online and mobile giving as easy as possible for donors.
