If you work for a nonprofit organization, as any business, there is a lot going on right now, and it is changing daily. Do I need to cancel my summer event? Will I be able to make payroll? How should I be engaging with my donors and clients? Should I be applying for federal stimulus money? Are there grants I can apply for? What will the future of philanthropy look like? These are just some of the questions, nonprofits are grappling with, and while the Telluride Foundation doesn’t know all the answers, it is hosting an information and Q&A web conference platform every Friday at 2pm.
The weekly nonprofit call is our attempt to keep nonprofits and our grantees up to date with the most current information, said April Montgomery, VP Programs, “With everyone working from home, It is a great way for us to connect, and remind the nonprofit community that we are looking out for resources, available to help, and have the long-term economic recovery of our region in mind, which includes healthy, thriving nonprofits.
The first call, held April 3rd focused on the Payroll Protection Act and Economic Injury Disaster Loans available to nonprofits, as well as state-wide grant opportunities for COVID 19 response. The second call, held April 10th, focused on unemployment, the volunteer coordination program facilitated by Tri-County Health Network, and the Foundation’s new technical assistance program, offering free cash flow analysis and management consulting to any past grantee.
