In addition to making their software tools free or low-cost for nonprofits, many companies are also publishing guides on how to effectively transition to remote work and collaborate while staying home. If you're leading your nonprofit through a transition like this, we wanted to put together some resources that will help you see what others have done, and understand best practices for your organization's security, productivity, and communications to stakeholders.
With many nonprofits shifting to remote work abruptly due to the COVID-19 coronavirus, we've prioritized adding new remote work options and tools to the resources we share. As you review the software below, note that there may be different levels of discounts for nonprofits impacted by COVID-19 versus nonprofits actively working on a cure or frontline healthcare for COVID-19. Do you know about a resource we should add to this list? You can submit an entry to our resource directory here, or post in our Facebook Group.
Though the COVID-19 pandemic is a crisis that calls for a different type of response than a hurricane or an earthquake, we're proud to see people mobilizing to help those who are vulnerable and to keep each other safe, healthy, and fed. We are grateful to frontline healthcare workers, as well as restaurant, grocery, and delivery workers, and everyone who is staying home right now and practicing social distancing. Read More

Longer-term, we're seeing humanitarian organizations evaluating how they will deliver aid and operate their in-country programs if it's harder for staff to travel, and wondering whether aid workers will be able to travel into countries instituting travel bans. We've put together some initial resources to help navigate international shipping and changes to travel availability, and will continue to update this page with new information as available.
On January 7th, a 6.4 magnitude earthquake struck southern Puerto Rico, and significant aftershocks have continued in the days and weeks following, leaving many Puerto Ricans unable or afraid to return to their homes. Read More
Fundraising is important for nonprofits of every size, but for small nonprofits especially, it can be hard to know where to turn and what resources are available.
