Reopening Your Nonprofit

The COVID-19 pandemic has created unprecedented challenges for Kentucky’s economy, and nonprofits are a major part of the state’s current and future economy, with 1 in 10 Kentuckians employed at a nonprofit. Many organizations are challenged with questions about how and when to reopen in order to continue providing services and contributing to Kentucky’s economy while also keeping employees, volunteers, and clients safe. 

KNN has compiled the following resources and tools to help Kentucky nonprofits navigate reopening to staff and/or the public. More resources will be posted here as they become available. If you know of resources we should add, please let us know!
