By now, the severity of the COVID-19 pandemic has sunk in with most of our clients across the country and we are all navigating how to handle this new reality. In our tenured history, we have seen many difficult times and know travel and fundraising galas will bounce back. But first, collectively we face a period of uncertainty and moment-by-moment changes impacting everyday life.

With this rapidly evolving situation we understand what we think and predict today may become obsolete in a short time.

We want to let you know we are thinking about you. Here are three recent articles we’ve found helpful:

1. Pivoting to a Virtual Fundraising Event
2. Fundraising Amidst a Global Pandemic
3. Virtual Fundraising Ideas

We have spent our time over the last few weeks working closely with your donors to postpone or reschedule trips in March, April and May. They have been truly wonderful and understand we are in uncharted territory. Seeing events like The Kentucky Derby and The Masters postpone, rather than cancel, is a positive sign forward.

We have extended all of our experiences from a 1-year redemption process to 2+ years to make everyone feel more comfortable.

Be safe and take care of yourselves.
