This report represents an initial attempt to learn more about how COVID-19 has affected the charitable sector in Canada. It is part of a series of case studies depicting the effects of the global pandemic on Canada’s philanthropic community, and a first step in exploring the adaptive capacity of Canadian foundations to respond to the current crisis. PhiLab‘s goal was to capture some of the novel initiatives developed, or supported, by Canadian foundations in response to the outbreak. They also aimed to provide some sense of the impact these initiatives might have in the future. The data from their analysis is meant to complement the findings of a systematic survey undertaken by Philanthropic Foundations Canada (PFC) as well as a Delphi method-based examination of the perspectives of experts in the field.
