Compassion & COVID-19

By Miquette Thompson, MNA, CFRE

During this time of crisis and uncertainty, the most important thing that we at Essex & Drake can communicate to you is a commitment to our values: Ethical Standards, Community-Mindedness and Collaboration. 

We know that many of our current and former clients are on the front lines of keeping our communities safe and healthy. We are here for you, want to know how you’re faring and how we can help. We will continue providing remote support to our clients, are prepared to advise on or manage emergency fundraising campaigns, and can provide an array of interim support as needed–we plan to remain nimble as your needs shift and adapt. 

As a business based in the South Bay, we feel it is particularly important to lift up organizations working locally to provide essential services during this time and embody the ethos of mutual aid. Sacred Heart Community Service, a recent Essex & Drake client, “was built on a foundation of neighbors helping neighbors” and conducts its work with the understanding that “We -you and me- are the safety net“.
