How Has a Global Pandemic Changed the Fundraising Landscape for Nonprofits?

The landscape has shifted under our feet over the last three months. First the global pandemic of COVID-19 has directly impacted both donors and nonprofit organizations. Then, on the heels of this pandemic, in the US, we have had a huge uprising and unprecedented response to racial injustice in our society.
