WSPN, like the general public, is concerned about the growing spread of the coronavirus internationally and the impact it will have here in the U.S.
For those of us in the nonprofit industry, there are additional issues that we need to consider and to be prepared for. Techsoup has a great virtual workshop, Managing the Impact of COVID-19 on Nonprofits that can help you take those necessary first steps on how to address this issue at your organization.
As the impact of the coronavirus evolves, you can count on WSPN to continue to share information and updates as well as how it impacts the nonprofit community. Please watch our website and our social media channels for more information as we receive it.
