You’ve received a ton of emails and read a number of blog posts informing you of the many ways companies plan on handling COVID-19.

This is not one of those blog posts.

This communication is about you. As a champion of social good, you are an incredibly important cog in a great big machine that ensures our community does not fall apart amidst a crisis. And make no mistake, we are in crisis. We need you now more than ever.

At Next Stage, we believe in the power of people to come together in meaningful ways, of our empathy and compassion for each other. It is the basis of the nonprofit construct. It is during times like these, when we are most tested as a people, that we can rally together in pursuit of shared goals. It is easy to be pro-community when times are good. We prove our mettle by what we do when times are less certain.

Over the next few weeks, we will be creating and channeling content on our blog and via social media (FacebookLinkedInInstagramTwitter) to help our community formulate strategies and put them into action. Our team is mobilized to serve as a resource and we encourage you to reach out to us. We are here for you.

Times may be tough, but we can overcome this together. Our thoughts are with you.
