COVID-19: Grantmaking to Support Children and Older Adults
2 p.m. ET/ 1 p.m. CT
With COVID-19 there seem to be more questions than answers, particularly for funders who want to respond effectively and efficiently. This series of webinars brings expert panelists together to address some of the most pressing issues, including getting money out the door quickly, supporting vulnerable populations and investing in local communities.
The COVID-19 pandemic has touched everyone, but the youngest and oldest among us are being disproportionately affected. Sponsored by IMC Chicago Charitable Foundation, our fifth COVID-19 Series webinar on Tuesday, June 9 at 2 p.m. ET explored how these two groups are being impacted by the pandemic – older adults, from a mortality and morbidity perspective, and young people due to a disruption of childcare and education. The webinar also addressed overarching concerns, including nutrition and health care access, and how philanthropy can help meet these needs.
CDP Vice President Regine A. Webster moderated the discussion and panelists included:
- Elaine Ryan, vice president for government affairs, AARP
- Dr. Lynette M. Fraga, CEO, Child Care Aware® of America
