Giving Back to Our Communities: Why Nonprofits Need Our Help More Than Ever

The latest pandemic has shook a lot of industries and small businesses to their core. Perhaps one of the most affected have been nonprofits.

According to a recent article on MarketWatch, “Most nonprofits can expect to suffer a significant setback for quite some time and some potentially will face organizational failure.” These important organizations will likely be suffering for donations for the following reasons:

  • While we don’t yet know how much economic damage COVID-19 will cause, the rapidity of the decline so far has people concerned about the potential hit to their businesses and personal finances. In turn, they are likely to forego charitable contributions as a way of cutting expenses and preserving capital.
  • When we emerge from this crisis, it’s probably safe to say that most people are also expecting the future to look different. People and businesses may respond with a defensive urge to cut back on their philanthropy. 
  • Social distancing, while necessary to mitigate the health crisis, has already caused massive disruptions to those charitable organizations that rely on events to raise critical funding, including walks, dinners, bike rides, races, open houses, and galas.
  • Governments will be searching for ways to pay for increased expenses, relief, and stimulus plans during this time. It’s highly likely that organizations which have received government support in the past will see those funds slashed.
