Friday, April 3, 2020

Updated: Friday, April 3 at 12 p.m.

We continue to update the following links to resources, Colorado relief funds and philanthropic responses to the COVID-19 pandemic. We invite you to share with us any additional information.

Phianthropy Colorado has been working to connect funders across the state and ensure the sector has the most up-to-date information about nonprofit needs, relief funds and resources. Funders should check our events calendar for upcoming webinars designed to bring our members together to share their approaches to responding to the COVID-19 pandemic.

You can read a summary here of how Colorado nonprofits responded to our survey asking them to identify urgent needs and the overall impact of COVID-19 on their organizations and communities.

We're also maintaining an inventory for our members of grants made and strategies implemented in response to the crisis. Members can log in to provide their information. 

PLEASE NOTE: The World Health Organization is providing regular updates to its guidance about preventing the spread of COVID-19. Visit the WHO’s coronavirus webpage for guidance on hygiene and prevention.

Workplace guidance for employees regarding COVID-19 prevention and procedures:

  • As always, if you feel sick, seek medical guidance from your health care provider and do not come to work until you are feeling better and have been diagnosed as not contagious. You should prioritize your health and ensure you do not expose your coworkers to infection.
  • If you feel you may have been exposed to an infectious disease, are exhibiting symptoms or have been diagnosed as contagious by your health care provider, you should immediately isolate yourself from others. Please contact your supervisor to inform them so that appropriate actions can be taken to prevent the spread of any infection.
  • If you have returned from areas with confirmed COVID-19 cases and experience cough, fever or shortness of breath within 14 days of return, you should call ahead to a healthcare professional and mention your recent travel or close contact. If you have had close contact with someone showing these symptoms who has recently traveled from areas with confirmed COVID-19 cases, you should call ahead to a healthcare professional and mention your close contact and their recent travel.
