Philanthropy maintains fast, generous and flexible response to COVID-19

September 09th, 2020

In May, Philanthropy Australia released the results of a survey of Australia's leading philanthropic trusts and foundations funding response to COVID-19.

To develop a broader, ongoing understanding of philanthropy's response to the pandemic, we conducted a follow-up survey last month, the results of which show that philanthropy has continued its rapid, generous and flexible response.

Notably, 81% of respondents changed or adapted their funding, 47% shifted to unrestricted grants, 63% established new COVID-19 programs and 46% are considering longer-term changes to their grantmaking practices.
