How can I volunteer or support those affected by COVID-19?

Fund organizations that are working in areas with poor access to regular medical services as well as organizations specifically fighting the coronavirus such as UNICEF USA or the Coronavirus Relief Fund.

Host a Pop-up Giving Circle – Make a donation, deepen your understanding, and combat isolation by hosting a virtual pop-up giving circle to bring your friends, family, or community together and donate funds to organizations working on COVID-19 and related causes.

Find ways to support quarantined individuals. The use of quarantines is crucial to helping control the spread of any infectious disease, including COVID-19. Support may include assisting individuals once the quarantine is over, especially if they lost income, housing, or employment.
