Safe & Ready Nonprofits

Nancy Bacon and Margaret Meps Schulte created Safe & Ready Nonprofits in 2020 to make sure safety and health don’t get in the way of nonprofits achieving their mission. Disaster Planning for Nonprofits is one set of resources in this family of tools designed for nonprofits. Nonprofit Safety Hero, a partnership with Washington Food Coalition, will be available starting in Fall 2021.
