Philanthropy in Canada is undergoing a major shift in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and many funders have adapted to this unprecedented situation and adjusted their support to grantees. Philanthropy Responds is an interactive data mapping tool designed to identify initiatives and encourage collaboration within the Canadian grantmaking community to better serve Canadians impacted by this crisis. By sharing data and providing a platform to engage funders, along with a timely snapshot of activities and critical gaps in funding, Philanthropy Responds is a useful data tool to build knowledge, encourage collaboration and help funders make decisions.
