Update: Foraker staff will be canceling all sessions requiring travel until April 21 in accordance with the Governor’s mandate to limit interstate travel. 

Dear Nonprofit Leaders:

Starting today, Foraker staff will be working remotely.  Our plan is to keep the office closed until April 15, at which time we will reevaluate the situation to see what is necessary for public health.

I do not make this decision lightly. I am concerned not only for the health of our staff and consultant team but for the public’s health.  The more we self-quarantine and practice social distancing the better off we will all be as a community.

We are staying ready and able to serve the nonprofit sector.  While we are working to reschedule all in-person meetings, we are still available to work with you virtually.  Our goal is uninterrupted service as much as possible. 

All of our communication channels – phone, email, website, social media are active.  Feel free to contact us. And be sure to let us know how your nonprofit is doing by filling out this survey.

While many of you have chosen to cancel your board and staff retreats, know that there are other ways we can support you.  We are planning to ramp up opportunities for online connection through classes and forums.  Watch your email and our social media pages for more updates in the coming weeks. 

We are also updating our COVID-19 resources page with useful information.  Please let us know if there is a resource you can’t find.  Many of our partners like the National Council of Nonprofits are also collecting information that can help you.

We know that many of our nonprofits are on the front lines of this pandemic.  We see you.  We appreciate you.  We are here to support you.

Be safe.  Keep your family safe.  Keep your community safe.

Laurie
