The crisis of COVID-19 in 2020 has pressed fast-forward on so many of the already burning questions facing philanthropists. How can they free-up funding and in what way can their support help the organisations on the frontline of this crisis? How can charities help philanthropists to understand how this support helps in the short-term and also for long-term systemic change? What do charities need to understand about the changes happening in wealth management?

The COVID-19 pandemic has affected communities across the world, but while there have been lots of shared experiences, there certainly isn’t a one-size-fits-all response for those organisations trying to mitigate and respond to this crisis. As the epicentre of the outbreak has shifted from Europe to South East Asia and the Americas, what are charities doing to help communities prepare?
Join us in this podcast as we hear from WaterAid whose federation supports 28 countries across the world. Without a vaccine, what are the most effective measures that can be implemented quickly to protect those hardest to reach? And what part can clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene play in mitigating this and future shocks?

We know modern philanthropy around the world is changing. In part this is due to COVID- 19 as well as other outbreaks creating major financial shocks over the past decade. Philanthropists are becoming more involved in their financial giving, being more reactive which influences the causes they support. The next generation of philanthropists will therefore reflect a new set of values and come to their giving with a vastly different set of expectations than those before. What role will health play, and what part for all the work that enables the delivery of healthcare for all, such as water, sanitation and hygiene?
