There is a unique role nonprofits play in our economy, and that is to provide hope when it can seem that hope is fading.
Now that the first people are getting the vaccine, it feels like we are on the verge of a Grand Opening of our economy.
It is especially exciting to see the front line workers get vaccinated, as they have risked their lives every day to save others.
Many nonprofits have been at the forefront throughout the pandemic, continuing to lead and serve people.
For the vast majority of people, the vaccine means a return to life as usual.
However, you can expect there might be some hiccups along the way, as there is with any Grand Opening.
When negative news hits the air waves it can lead to fits and starts for the economy and market.
And this is precisely where nonprofits have a role and voice of providing calm in the midst of confusion.
While negativity and uncertainty could rattle the nerves of many, it is the voice of calm that will keep us moving forward.
Any Grand Opening can experience some hiccups. This can also be true for a country, economy, and market Re-Opening.
The resounding message is that we will get through this together.
Remain resolute about the bright future we all have!
