Since the COVID-19 pandemic reached India, the focus of NGOs and CSR funders has been—correctly—on addressing immediate relief activities, from providing supplies to migrants to giving targeted support to end-beneficiaries. However, this near-term work may have an unintended adverse long-term impact on NGOs, especially those with significant CSR funding.
To understand this longer-term impact, FSG conducted in-depth interviews with 22 NGOs and 18 CSR heads and CEOs. The aim of this blog is to enable NGOs to make more effective decisions—based on data—on how CSR funding is likely to change and how CSR funders are thinking about post-COVID-19. We also share some initial thoughts on how CSR funders can support their NGO partners.
