Another week of escalation of the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) crisis has much of the country (and world) locked in at home. As we spoke to many of the members of our network, we found a lot of concern about how to continue to raise money, how to engage the youth in their programs and how to effectively communicate with their stakeholders.
Listening to our audience, we have launched two initiatives that we believe will be helpful and will create a productive way to utilize this time.
- FREE WEBINAR SERIES–Every Monday, Wednesday and Friday to foster interaction, collaboration and learning during this challenging time
- RESOURCE PAGE for services, programs and ideas that are available to organizations during this COVID-19 (Coronavirus) crisis.

We are continuing to monitor the progression of COVID-19.
While we are hopeful that we will be able to hold Sports Philanthropy World 2020 as scheduled, we recognize that we are faced with an evolving situation for which nobody has clear answers.
We are evaluating alternative platforms to host the conference in a virtual environment and we welcome your input into what type of format you would like to see.
(ANY REGISTRATIONS WILL BE FULLY REFUNDABLE)
As a result of COVID-19, we have extended our special EARLY BIRD rate valid through May 31, 2020 so you can make an informed decision regarding your attendance.
