The Hub brings together the knowledge, skills, expertise and resources of funders (including foundations, philanthropists and others) in partnership with wider civil society, to create a time-limited, collective, evidence-based and effective contribution to the response required as a result of the Covid-19 crisis.
The Hub informs and amplifies the contribution that individual funders can make. The impact of the hub is more than the sum of its parts and contributes to a VCS that is resilient, inclusive, informed and effective.
Drawing on those developed by the Covid-19 Funder pledge
, the Hub works to the following guiding principles: Intelligent, complementary, easy, trusting, flexible, reflective, equitable, straightforward, quick, transparent, and co-created.
The Hub promotes activity and learning developed by existing and developing funder collaborations responding to Covid-19 with a focus on particular issues or areas. It has a UK wide remit, and while organisations involved in the Hub do not need to be members of ACF they should be committed to sharing data, including through 360Giving, and insights/learning via the Hub.
