One in six foundations are changing all of their day-to-day activities in response to the coronavirus crisis, according to a survey by the Association of Charitable Foundations (ACF).
Some 16% of respondents said they have overhauled the way they worked every day to try and address the pandemic, and a further 25% said they have made major changes to their operations. Only 5% said they have not made any changes at all.
Over 70% said that they are interested in collaborating more with other foundations to tackle the impact of the crisis, either by pooling resources or combining funding processes.
ACF reports that some foundations are waiting for clear proposals about how joint working would operate in practice before committing to greater collaboration. The results come from a survey of 56 foundations, which was conducted online and concluded last week.
