Of the hundreds of questions we are receiving every day here at Salsa Labs, most can be summed up in one question...
How can my nonprofit continue to survive and thrive during the COVID-19 pandemic?
Salsa is here to help. To ensure we are doing all that we can as your partner in your advocacy and fundraising success, we have created this library of resources. There are already hundreds of blog posts, forums, webinars, and white papers available to nonprofits on the topic of COVID-19. We have done the research for you and are curating the best of the best, bringing them to you here.
We will be updating this page daily and adding new topic areas as they arise. If you find a great resource you would like to share, please send the link to email@example.com for consideration.
As you begin to review the list below, remember a few key strategies:
Stay Safe. Stay Healthy.
