COVID-19 Recovery Checklist for Nonprofits and Charities 




The current environment facing nonprofit organizations in Alberta is challenging and complex. As the province transitions from initial response to the COVID-19 crisis into the recovery phase, nonprofit and charitable organizations share an important role in the recovery of our economy and communities.

This COVID-19 Recovery Checklist for Nonprofits and Charities has been developed by IntegralOrg to assist nonprofit organizations in identifying current and future needs in the recovery phase. Leading your organization forward will require many choices and actions based on an understanding of the evolving external environment and the internal capacity and preparedness of your staff, Board, and volunteers.

The checklist has three sections:

  • The Recovery Pathways will help frame possible futures for your organization.
  • The Checklist allows your organization to assess current and expected organizational capacities and identify areas for development.
  • The Resource Bank provides relevant resources and supports that can be used to increase the capacity and preparedness of your organization in key governance and operational areas.
