Resilience and Reinvention: Canadian Philanthropy and Nonprofits Post-Pandemic

Presented by Professor Susan Phillips, Director, Master of Philanthropy and Non-Profit Leadership, SPPA.

Discussion Description:
Philanthropy and the nonprofit sector in Canada are being transformed by COVID-19. One in five nonprofits is already in financial trouble, and many will not survive. Others are proving to be resilient and innovative in dealing with increased demand during the crisis; community and private foundations are stepping up their grantmaking and leadership. The post-pandemic period will require more than recovery, but a reinvention -- of financing and fundraising, services, advocacy and more inclusive engagement with communities. 

Hosted by: Keith Sjogren (BA/71), Managing Director, iNVESTOR ECONOMiCS
Introduction by: Jennifer Conley (MPNL/19), Chief Advancement and Liaison Officer, Carleton University.
