What funders learnt from Covid-19

Donors share the challenges and changes to their funding during the pandemic. Part of Bond's #Funding4Dev week


Covid-19 challenged donors to shift their processes, relationships and priorities, including how they fund organisations. In this session, donors will share how they responded to the crisis and the changes NGOs should be prepared for.  You will get a better understanding of the key issues in the discussion and how INGOs can be better prepared for changes in how donors fund.  

In this session, we will explore:

  • how donors responded to Covid-19 and how they worked with NGOs and local organisations 
  • whether their funding reached the most vulnerable 
  • what funding practices will change as a result of Covid-19.

This webinar is part of Bond's #Funding4Dev week. 


This session will run on Monday 23 November, 11:00 UK time for 90 minutes.

The session will be recorded and made available on our website afterwards.
