Covid-19 INSTITUTIONAL Resilience and
Impact Optimization Toolkit For
NON-PROFITS and Funders

RECOMMENDED DECISIONS FRAMEWORK | May, 2020

The disruptive impact of the COVID-19 pandemic is different from any other external disruption the social sector has seen before. Macroeconomic and socio-political stressors will have huge implications on India’s ability to achieve SDG goals, on funding pipelines, and on government priorities, potentially creating an environment where re-invention of solutions is critical to ensure the well-being of the communities. Thus, pro-active risk assessments and comprehensive decision planning are urgently called for. Dasra has curated a Toolkit that will enable non-profit leaders to navigate the on-going crisis, pro-actively plan for future and re-align with evolving priorities.


Why use this Toolkit?

The purpose of the toolkit is to help you and your non-profit executive team conduct a data-enabled stress test assessment that will allow your team to determine risk-adjusted decisions well in advance. Such decisions will not only help your nonprofit manage the ongoing crisis but may also place your nonprofit on the path of re-invention, and therefore, emerge more resilient from the crisis.

The Toolkit currently consists of a Self-Assessment and a Recommended Decisions Framework, and as we roll it out, it will be updated on a real-time basis to ensure nonprofits are supported with Dasra’s latest insights.


To further understand the rationale and design of the Toolkit, please reference the above presentations, prepared to suit the context for both non-profits as well as funders.

To learn more about how you can structure your COVID-19 response plan, please sign up here to attend an informational webinar. Our team will get back to you as and when the next webinar is planned.


Disclaimer: This toolkit is designed by Dasra to help non-profits understand where they stand on institutional resilience and impact optimization, in the context of the COVID-19 emergency. It is simply indicative of the questions and decisions that an organization could consider; it is not a precise guide to dealing with the COVID-19 emergency specifically. All actions and decisions are at the discretion of the organization.
