Wohl Legacy COVID-19 Emergency Response

The spread of COVID-19 dramatically affected the whole world. Its impact, and the subsequent significant financial ramifications, means the charity sector globally faced a range of unprecedented challenges in maintaining its provision of ongoing vital, front-line, health and care services.

The Wohl Legacy was a signatory on the London Funders’ We stand with the Sector statement as well as Israel’s Forum of Philanthropic Foundations letter. Both of whom provides a cross-funder approach to supporting the sector during the emergency.

In addition, we also worked with each of our grantees to understand their needs at this time and maintain flexibility in our approach.

We also responded to a number of emergency funds, including:

We are proud to have supported some of the leading organisations involved in both care and research. We thank and salute all who participate and in particular those who worked on the front-line
