To Our Healthcare Georgia Foundation Friends and Neighbors,
As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to spread across the state of Georgia, the Foundation is keenly aware of the wide-ranging impact this global event is having on our nonprofit healthcare community. From depleted resources to staffing shortages, the effects of this ever-evolving situation are only beginning to be recognized.
As a philanthropic foundation, our strategy in this difficult time is multifaceted: we seek to scan the current environment, identify priority areas for focus and relief, assess our own capacity, then act with urgency and efficiency to do our part. We recognize the significant obstacles facing Georgia’s most vulnerable citizens, and we understand how vital the healthcare safety net is for the well-being of those citizens. Our utmost priority during this pandemic is to provide support to those who are working tirelessly to keep our communities healthy and well. Please stay tuned for continued updates from our Foundation as our response continues to develop over time.
We also understand the importance of having accessible and accurate information during this time. That’s why at the bottom of this page, you’ll find links to resources aimed to help you and your organization in the days ahead. We’ll be continually updating these resource sections in the weeks and months to come.
We hope that you and your loved ones stay safe as we all continue to navigate this health crisis. Please remember to practice social distancing, stay home as much as possible, and please practice the recommended handwashing guidelines to keep yourself and others safe.
Gary D. Nelson
