Together, we’ve launched a new tool to aid in this effort:

What We’re Doing is THE place for helping the Greater Cleveland nonprofit community assess, respond and recover from the COVID-19 pandemic. Social Venture Partners Cleveland and several community partners have come together to create a single modern website serving the entire Greater Cleveland metropolitan area. is designed to engage Northeast Ohio’s nonprofit sector in COVID-19 response and recovery that drives volunteers to where they are needed and connects donors and funders to the causes that matter most to them, and the community.

The platform is free to volunteers and nonprofits, underwritten by the nonprofit technology organization Inspiring Service and the partners shown below.
