How to Help with COVID:

Creative Approaches to Economic Aid

Thank you for your interest in Creative Approaches to Economic Aid. This event has completed.

The COVID-19 pandemic has created widespread economic uncertainty caused by financial losses due to the emergency shutdown, including significant job losses. The immediate repercussions are far-reaching and affect a broad group of people, with a disproportionate impact on black and brown people. Even as many people find themselves in need of immediate help for the first time, the longer-term effects are still being realized.

Responding to that level of need requires creative solutions and philanthropy. Please join Fidelity Charitable® and guest speakers Chris Hughes, Dr. Angela Jackson and Andrew Yang to learn about innovative opportunities to use philanthropy to support those suffering financially due to the crisis.

This session will provide:

  • An overview of the short and long-term impact of the crisis on economic security, including impact to black and brown communities.
  • Ideas to leverage your giving to help individuals with immediate economic recovery and long-lasting economic resilience.
