How not-for-profits and the community are affected

Ask Agony Uncle

Got a question about COVID-19 and NFPs?

The coronavirus crisis is throwing up all sorts of curly governance questions for community groups and not-for-profits. Is our conservation group allowed to make a donation to coronavirus research even though it’s not part of our mission? If our 80-year-old volunteers insist on continuing to work, are we liable if they catch the virus? Can our group just hibernate until this is all over?

Our Community’s Agony Uncle, aka thinker in residence Chris Borthwick, is here to help. Submit your question below, and if he can help, we’ll share his response here. We won’t publish your name or any information that could be used to identify your organisation without your permission.
