President of United Way of NCM Kory Eng partners with Steve Adams, President of Community Foundation of North Central Massachusetts, to discuss the wake of the pandemic has had on our local non-profits, while still serving the needs of the community.
The COVID-19 crisis is ever so slightly relaxing its grip on our lives. But as we begin to breathe a little easier, it is clear the pandemic is leaving in its wake a potentially more lasting and dangerous crisis — the hollowing out of our nonprofit sector. Only decisive and sustained action to shore up our nonprofits will avert a sharp decline in the quality of life across North Central Massachusetts.
We are privileged to lead two of the region’s funder organizations. It has been remarkable to see people and institutions come together to fight the pandemic and its community-crushing effects.
