Supporting charities during the Covid pandemic

Charities are amongst the hardest hit organisations in this crisis. For many the demand on their services has increased at the same time as their sources of funding have disappeared. At The EQ Foundation we’ve tried to reassure our favourite charities that committed future pledges from us will be honoured, while also stepping up our rate of giving to respond to urgent needs.
