Who can see your viewing activity?
Is there a comprehensive list of the pooled fund options that already exist that you can share?
Here’s a list of local and regional funds hosted at California community foundations: lccf.org/coronavirus
Yes, there is. Just finished yesterday. Please send me your email address.
Can you share that survey with us?
Stuart, please email to me as well. email@example.com. Thanks!
Ditto to sharing surveys. We would like to send one to our grantees. Would be great to have an example.
Thank, you we would love to see the results
We were going to survey our 250 grantees this week. Should NCG instead do a grantee survey of everyone’s grantees and everyone has access to results?
Stuart me as well please! firstname.lastname@example.org
If possible, can you also share the names of the survey recipients? Would be helpful to not send too many funder surveys to the same orgs
Stuart, I would appreciate receiving it too.
Thanks for suggesting, Jackie

Can the survey tools people are using be shared?
Here is a link to the letter we (Weinberg Foundation) sent to our grantees last week relaxing reporting requirements during this time: https://hjweinbergfoundation.org/news/a-letter-to-the-foundations-grantees
Stuart please email email@example.com
Stuart, can you email me too: firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks!
Stuart---send it to me & we'll get it out to everyone @ email@example.com
Thanks Steve and Stuart for sharing the list with the whole group

How is the SF fund being administered?
For small businesses who need funds to pay workers or rent for the next two months, should we direct them to the SF fund? If so, what is the best avenue?
thank you Matthew!

The question at the top of my mind is what is the single best way for philanthropy to drive an expansion in testing for COVID? So many aspects of the social/economic/health fallout of this seems to come down to the lack of rapid and widespread testing. Very curious to hear what funders on this call are doing on this front.
Stuart, can I also receive a copy? Thanks so much: firstname.lastname@example.org

Does anyone have a list of funders who are open to funding remote learning for students? Not just connectivity (thanks Comcast!) but also chromebooks and other hardware needs?
Is anyone tracking the flow of potential funding from emergency legislation from the Feds and State? Based on what Glen heard from the City of Oakland, this seems to be a crucial need for local government.
Matthew, is this what you were referring to earlier, from SFChron: "11:24 a.m. Most of Bay Area placed on lockdown until April 7: Six Bay Area counties are expected to announce “shelter in place” orders for all residents on Monday, directing everyone to stay inside their homes and away from others as much as possible for the next three weeks as public health officials desperately try to curb the rapid spread of coronavirus across the region. The directive will begin at midnight Monday and involves San Francisco, Santa Clara, San Mateo, Marin, Contra Costa and Alameda counties, officials told The Chronicle. The order is to stay in place until at least April 7. The orders fall just short of a full lockdown, and it wasn’t immediately clear how, or to what degree, they would be enforced."
Ari: yes. The official public health order for San Francisco, related to that, will be formally issued shortly.
Walter S Johnson Foundation has been working in Washington state on creating a fund to purchase smart phones for low income kids. They also plan to purchase laptops.
Cristina Jimenez “who is funding remote learning for students” - I am seeing some corporate response and others may have philanthropic response. Google Hangouts is offering its enterprise package for free to educators- Because of the school closures around the country, Age of Learning is providing free home access to its products (top ranked products ABCmouse.com Early Learning Academy, @adventureacademy, and ReadingIQ) to families of students affected by school closures due to coronavirus. Please forward to educators you know. School and district leaders can visit www.ageoflearning.com/schools to obtain free access.https://www.ageoflearning.com/schools?fbclid=IwAR2JWK3quRLJc1EVnudOdsKJedAsJxwr2OP8WBcse544vK1UNSi0BuZeZU8
There are so many great resources in this chat window. When the notes are sent out, can these resources also be included?

Can NCG support the continued sharing of resources between funders? A listserv?
Christine Chow, SCAN Community Giving
I am with SCAN Health Plan Community Giving. We are not NCG members, could I still receive the notes? Very helpful info! We fund emergency assistance and senior nutrition in 11 CA counties. Email: email@example.com
Is there a website you are pointing your grantees to for different resources that can help them? Funds, information, govt supports, in kind resources?

For informative call. Thank you NCG!
