COVID-19 has upended life as we know it with its catastrophic effects felt by global healthcare systems communities, businesses, and organizations globally, inadvertently affecting the financial markets and the global economy. To curb the transmission of the virus, border shutdowns, travel restrictions, and quarantine in countries that constitute the world’s largest economies had to be enforced resulting in a massive unemployment crisis and recession.
COVID-19 Hardship Relief
Global financial markets have been heavily impacted by the effects of COVID-19 spread. As the number of cases started to increase globally, so did the number of families in dire need of financial help. To heed this call, government sectors, nonprofit organizations, corporations, credit unions, and philanthropic organizations have intervened and now play crucial roles in the timely approval and disbursement of grants to individuals and families from vulnerable populations.
Growing Your Social Impact
We know supporting individuals and families whose practices and incomes are adversely impacted by the COVID-19 crisis can be a daunting task. Bestowing grants fairly and equitably to thousands if not millions of individuals affected by this health crisis manually is a time-consuming and taxing process.
Hardship Relief Management
Cloud-based grants management is critical during this period where timely funding could mean the difference between economic recovery and continued financial struggle. With the majority of grantmakers working from home, reliance on paper, outdated procedures, and decentralized management can seriously hamper an institution’s ability to disperse and track funds.
During these unprecedented times, foundations and nonprofit organizations can fully benefit from the use of grant management software even as they work remotely to review applications, make grant awards, communicate with funding recipients, keep track of payments, and ensure that recipients comply with the requirements of each award.
Grant seekers use this type of software to identify funding opportunities, complete applications, follow up on the status of each application, and communicate directly with funding organizations.
