Creating an organized collaboration among funders has proven to be a powerful mechanism to collectively achieve greater impact. As COVID-19 continues to spread across the globe and affect nearly every corner of society, collaboration is needed more than ever. In response to COVID-19, philanthropy must quickly adapt to the crisis and coordinate efforts among funders to identify priority areas, pool funds, and enable informed decision-making across stakeholders.

This conversation will explore how three COVID-19 funds are supporting the response at local, national and global levels. Representatives from Seattle Foundation’s COVID-19 Response Fund, the CDC Foundation Emergency Response Fund, and the COVID Solidarity Response Fund will discuss how they are navigating this crisis and effectively aligning resources to better serve those hardest hit by the pandemic. The panel will be moderated by Gabrielle Fitzgerald, CEO and Founder of Panorama, an action tank dedicated to achieving ambitious goals and solving the world’s toughest problems. Gabrielle has spent her career working to increase awareness, change policies and raise resources in an effort to reduce the number of deaths globally from infectious diseases, with a focus on pandemic preparedness.
