A COVID-19 Urgent Service Provider Support Tool

A Free Tool for Donors and Funders, Built Using BCT Partners’ Equitable Impact Platform (EquIP)


CUSP A free insight tool designed to find and evaluate the capacity of nonprofit direct service providers closest to the communities in greatest need, particularly those most directly affected by COVID-19. CUSP helps donors (a) identify the communities that have the greatest needs, including those where the Coronavirus cases and deaths are the highest, prioritizing the communities of color that are getting hit the hardest; (b) find the direct service providers – those serving individuals, children, youth and families – that are most accessible to these communities; and (c) share the financial needs of these front line organizations.
