Resiliency in a Time of Uncertainty: Leveraging Philanthropy During and After a Crisis

Available On Demand
Originally presented January 27, 2021

No one could have predicted the disruption and aftershocks caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.  Hospitals and health systems were at a breaking point, many facing uncertain futures.  In the earliest stages of the pandemic, CommonSpirit Health formed a Pandemic Task Force.  The task force immediately developed a plan to prioritize and maximize philanthropic resources to support their system and begin to lay the foundation for a “new normal”.  Their work resulted in more than $23 million raised through COVID-19 response efforts.
Hear from four of CommonSpirit Health’s Pandemic Task Force members as they share their experiences engaging donors, providing communication and operational tools, and motivating the team during a time of unexpected organizational change.
