Connecting people, communities, and resources to grow exempt organizations.

SPECIAL STATEMENT REGARDING THE COVID-19 VIRUS

Nonprofit Strategies During the Covid-19 Virus

We at NEA hope you and your families are staying safe and doing as well as can be expected. I expect that your last board meeting did not anticipate the level of economic uncertainty the Covid-19 Virus would bring. Most nonprofit organizations are not prepared for such a dramatic shift in funding and attending to those you serve.

NEA is a virtual office with a team poised to help nonprofits navigate through these uncertain times. Here are three easy places to start:

1. MESSAGING: Reach out to those you serve and the stakeholders that support you. Let them know the steps you are taking to continue your mission during these uncertain times. People are at home and limiting work so they will appreciate communication, videos, resources, and ideas that will keep them engaged with your organization. Your messaging should highlight what makes your organization unique and what distinguishes your organization from others.

2. DIVERSIFY REVENUES: Now is the time to look at your fundraising pipeline and see how you can diversify revenues to ensure funding continues. This current situation is an opportunity to advance, reinvent or retool, and prepare to succeed in what may be a new economy. One idea is to research what corporations have pledged to help during the pandemic and engage them for a new source of financial support.

3. MAINTAIN ENGAGEMENT: If you provide programs or services, ensure you can engage your community. This can be done virtually or you can use delivery services to bring people programs and resources to their doorstep.

All of us at NEA wish you and your organization well. We stand ready to help you navigate through this difficult time. We can provide you with the services you need immediately. We look forward to engaging you further and hope to hear from you soon.

Sincerely,

Brad Lebowsky, CEO
