      • Unknown Recipient: When a funder announces cash or in-kind gifts for general crisis relief without naming a recipient at all, or describes the recipient as only a national, regional, or local geographic entity.
      • Multiple Recipients: When a funder names more than one recipient of a cash or in-kind gift without specifying the dollar allocation to each.

      Additional resources from other organizations

      With an increase in hardships due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, organizations have created resources for nonprofits and foundations on how to address the impact of the virus. In an effort to avoid duplication of existing lists and resources, we are compiling this list with a focus on umbrella philanthropy and nonprofit-serving organizations.


      Candid gets you the information you need to do good. That’s why we created this pop-up webpage to share the philanthropic response to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Knowing where money is going and how, and having the latest information from organizations, facilitates thoughtful collaboration and decision-making in times of crisis.  

      The page updates automatically as data and news are added to our database. The data is derived from news articles and other sources, and funders who directly share their funding data with us. We code the data according to our taxonomy. The news section pulls from 300,000 source articles that we regularly scan for relevant information. Check back regularly for updates. 

      Visit this free disaster funding map to track giving to disasters, including coronavirus. The Center for Disaster Philanthropy also has several resources that can help funders be effective in their response to this crisis.
