The Covid-19 outbreak has hit hard on the Nonprofit community, posing numerous challenges on the organizations’ ability to survive and carry on their mission.

Due to the nation-wide social distancing regulations and Covid-19’s economic and social consequences, many local nonprofits have had to cancel and postpone their planned fundraising and program activities for 2020. Local nonprofits will face a challenging year with their operations and fundraising.
That is why we launched this Covid-19 Response Community Fund to provide support to local NPOs in need to survive and carry on the mission through this global crisis. Our funding goal is 1.6 BILLION VND. It will allow us to distribute 30 grants with an estimated fund of 50 million VND per NPO in need. This includes helping local nonprofits keep their programs running to support the affected people who lost their jobs due to Covid-19, paying salaries to the teachers from the disadvantaged youth development programs, providing necessary training for communities to cope with the pandemic, having a space to work in the next 6 months.
Given the fact that there is a negligible funding reserve for local nonprofits, this urgent funding supports local nonprofits to ensure they can maintain their work in the next 3 to 6 months until the social distancing regulations are fully lifted and life activities can resume as normal. The fund will enable local nonprofits to continue their fundraising and program activities. This will make sure as many local nonprofits as possible can continue their mission during and after the Covid-19 pandemic.
