As we unite as a nation to stop the spread of COVID-19, the Todd Foundation is committed to support our community funding partners as they work hard to support others, all the while trying to ensure their frontline workers and loved ones are safe.
Alongside Philanthropy New Zealand and other funders, we have signed an open letter, pledging to offer our support in a way that is flexible, high-trust, responsive and collaborative. You can read the Covid-19 and Philanthropy Open Letter here.
Our community funding partners can use Todd Foundation funding in any way they see fit to ensure they keep operating and as they transition to new ways of working to support their communities.
Together with other funders, we will be reaching out to see what further support we might be able to provide the sector in these unprecedented times.
We will remain responsive to community needs as the current situation unfolds, and welcome information from the community sector about where needs are greatest. We are here to listen and respond.
To all those working hard in our communities, thank you for all that you do. Please stay safe.
Seumas, Susie and Valerie
