From April 30 to May 6, in its second COVID-19 survey, Charities Aid Foundation (CAF) of America polled 880 organizations worldwide to learn how the coronavirus global pandemic continues to impact their work. The organizations included in the survey represent 122 countries and 217 repeat respondents. The first survey conducted by CAF America involved 544 organizations representing 93 countries. Key Findings Include:
- Nearly all, 94.38% of the responding organizations, reported being negatively impacted by the coronavirus global pandemic.
- Many have shared concerns about the long-term impact of the pandemic on their donors’ ability to continue their support while the need for services is expected to increase, as more lives will be impacted by the economic hardships exacerbated by the coronavirus pandemic
- Almost 15% of the organizations surveyed were forced to suspend their operations, as their activities cannot be carried out remotely.
