As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to spread, individuals and organizations around the world are facing uncertainty and hardship—affecting everything from physical and mental health to financial security.
We are making emergency grants to support our grantees that are working on the front lines. These grantees are working to address social welfare and human needs in the United States and Israel, as well as to support education and schools, gender equity and reproductive care access, and criminal justice reform in the United States.
Particularly as it relates to our work in the U.S., we are deeply concerned that low-income communities, especially communities of color, are likely to suffer the most at this time—most notably, the young people and their families who are at the center of our work. We are providing support to help those with the fewest resources to withstand the hardships created by this pandemic.
We are committed to working closely with our grantees to understand the challenges they face and the needs we can help them address. To learn more about our response and access resources for navigating this crisis, please see our curated list of resources below.
