Pandemic Response

Due to the unprecedented nature of the pandemic, we give charities such as this one the opportunity to share the story of COVID's impact on them. Charities may submit their own pandemic responses through their nonprofit portal.


Gallantfew Inc. reported being impacted by COVID-19 in the following ways:
  • Program Delivery

  • Fundraising Capacity

  • Revenue

  • Administrative Capacity


How COVID-19 impacted the organization's operations financially:

GallantFew has been impacted by COVID-19 since early 2020. Since the global pandemic, GallantFew experienced a decrease in donations and a decrease in participation in fundraising events.


How COVID-19 impacted the organization's delivery of programs:

During COVID-19 GallantFew has experienced an increase in the need for our services. The pandemic resulted in an even greater need for veterans to receive our services in order to prevent enhanced feelings of isolation and hopelessness. GallantFew began offering opportunities for virtual connection on a more frequent basis to help isolated veterans find community. In 2021 the need for GallantFew's services nearly doubled.


How this organization adapted to changing conditions caused by COVID-19:

GallantFew began with daily virtual leadership chats at the beginning of lockdowns around the country, to provide community connection for veterans and our military community. As the pandemic continued those sessions moved to weekly sessions. In 2020 all of GallantFew's events were hosted virtually and in 2021 GallantFew hosted hybrid events providing a virtual option. GallantFew continues to offer weekly VetSTAR program sessions via Zoom meetings to encourage community, connection, and functional and emotional fitness.


Innovations the organization intends to continue permanently after the pandemic:

The expansion of virtual event abilities has enhanced GallantFew's mission as we have always served all veterans and service members, no matter the location. Because of this mission, GallantFew has always provided virtual services and primarily communicated via phone and email. COVID-19 resulted in additional tools for virtual connection, as well as familiarity with those tools. GallantFew is able to use Zoom on a much more frequent basis and many people are now comfortable and familiar with the platform.
