The economic devastation in the wake of COVID-19 is expected to have significant, negative global impacts. While we recognize that the COVID-19 pandemic is a major stressor for everyone and is disrupting communities everywhere, we know that these economic impacts disproportionately affect small businesses and individuals whose income depends on in-person engagement. Further, we also understand that these and all of the negative impacts are magnified amongst the most vulnerable.
To address our community’s pressing needs, the Yoga Alliance Foundation has established an Emergency Relief Fund to support those within the yoga community who are hardest hit by this pandemic.
In order to expedite the disbursement of funds, we are partnering with organizations that specialize in swiftly taking in and assessing grant applications and awarding and disbursing those grants responsibly and quickly.
This work is guided by a newly formed Relief Fund Advisory Committee that informs the criteria for selection of beneficiaries and helps the Foundation ensure a community-centered and equitable approach to the distribution of funding.
