Roadmap to Resilience: NGO Fundraising in post-COVID19 recovery

    • Date: 21/04/2021
    • Time: 15:30
    • Meeting place: Zoom



The COVID19 pandemic has significantly disrupted the daily operations and strategic goals of civil society organisations and the non-profit sector. At the same time, many funders and donors have responded by shifting priorities towards emergency funds and short-term needs.


As vaccines are being rolled out across Europe, it is time to reflect and prepare for what is coming next. The return to what has been before is unlikely. 

So how can organisations prepare and strategise for the transition to the post-COVID19 world?


The interactive online discussion panel aims to open a dialogue between donor organisations and activists, civil society and change-making organisations on working together to meet future challenges effectively. 


The expert presentations aim to build capacity within civil society to help them prepare and manage the transition successfully.


Organised with the support of the European Youth Forum.
