Know More, Do More

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 frequently and adding new topic areas as they arise. If you find a great resource you would like to share, please send the link to for consideration.

As you begin to review the list below, remember a few key strategies:

  • There is no 'one size fits all' solution. Consider each option carefully and make sure it fits with your mission.
  • Stay positive. There is plenty of fear and alarm to go around so a positive message will stand out in a crowd.
  • Don't be afraid to make the ask. Focus on the impact your organization is making in this world (use stories where possible), then make the gentle ask.

Stay Safe. Stay Healthy.
