Getting key data into donors' hands
The COVID-19 pandemic has inspired amazing generosity. It’s also highlighted gaps in information that donors must deal with as they try to support relief efforts. NAVi seeks to fill these gaps. The interactive mapping tool harnesses COVID-19 incidence rates, community vulnerability scores, and detailed nonprofit profiles to help you support the communities most affected by the pandemic.
NAVi displays data from the Surgo Foundation’s COVID-19 Community Vulnerability Index, Candid’s information on COVID-19 grants and nonprofit organizations, and the Johns Hopkins Coronavirus Resource Center.
We believe that a more informed donor is a more effective donor. With NAVI’s wide-ranging information at your fingertips, you’ll be ready to take action and make an meaningful impact on the lives of others.
