Why we're all more concerned with charity after the pandemic

The coronavirus pandemic has had a considerable impact on our lives. It has changed the way we work, the way we interact with each other and the way we spend our time and money.

Why we're all more concerned with charity after the pandemic

The coronavirus pandemic has had a considerable impact on our lives. It has changed the way we work, the way we interact with each other and the way we spend our time and money.  

One of the positives to come from the pandemic has been a significant increase in the desire to shop and live ethically, having a positive effect on the people around us. With many of us having more time to focus on social and ethical endeavours, there has been a significant rise in interest in charities and giving back. 

Supporting those who need it most 

We have all been impacted by the pandemic, and for many, the past year has been a wakeup call. It has brought hardship to many, and many people are realising that they can make a difference to people who struggle even in non-COVID times.  

The pandemic has been eye-opening for many, and as a result, there are many people keen to help support others.  

Helping COVID recovery 

Charities have been hit hard by the pandemic. People are less able to donate their time or money, and many charities are feeling the effects. After the pandemic has subsided, it is likely that we will see a big uptick in cash donations and volunteering time.  

Just as we will need to support local businesses, local charities will need our help more than ever once the pandemic is over. 

A rise in investment 

The pandemic has impacted people from all walks of life, and the most affluent among us have been doing what they can to help. There are many business leaders and experts who are seeing the essential nature of getting involved with a charity.  

An excellent example of this is Tej Kohli. He is using his considerable business acumen to help grow his own charity, the Tej Kohli Cornea Institute. Business leaders like Kohli are lending their considerable talents to developing and improving organisations in the third sector.  

Shifting focus 

The pandemic has changed the focus of our charitable donations for many. A lot of people are focussing more on charities dedicated to helping people with chronic breathing issues, as well as COVID-specific charities.  

This means that there is likely to be a deficit in donations to charities focusing on the arts. People are keen to make a difference in the lives of others, and it is unfortunately likely that the arts sector will suffer as a result.  

Rising demand 

The pandemic has put significant stress on many people both financially and health-wise. Many people will have used the services of charities for the first time over the course of the pandemic, and it is likely that people will want to give back when they are able to.  

There are many more that are likely to recover slowly after the pandemic. There is a clear need for support, and the pandemic has put us all in a mindset that is aimed towards the good we can do for others.
