Giving to charity during the pandemic is difficult. Fortunately, there is an app that can keep donations going even when in-person services aren’t able to happen.
This pandemic has turned everything in our worlds upside down. We’re either furloughed, working from home, or risking our lives in crucial jobs to keep things moving. Furthermore, we’re hanging out with our friends on video chats, going to school online, and even attending worship services online. We’re all adjusting to the new normal as the economy, especially charities and nonprofits, crumble around us. Even more, we’re going to want these organizations to be strong to help our comeback after this crisis subsides. So how can we keep our communities together while we shelter in place?
Giving is difficult right now for many reasons. In-person gatherings are prohibited in most places, and that’s where most charitable giving occurs. At the same time, the people who depend on this giving are depending more than ever before. Food pantries, soup kitchens, and other charities are seeing higher demand than ever before at the same time these organizations are suffering from a near-total loss of funding. If passing the collection plate in a church service is what usually sustains these organizations, how can we keep them going during the pandemic when they are needed most?
Right now it’s more important than ever to be the change you want to see in the world. The things you support now are going to be what’s left after the pandemic subsides. Learn more about giving during a pandemic below.
