Corporate Aid Tracker: COVID-19 Business in Action

On March 11, 2020, the World Health Organization declared the COVID-19 outbreak a pandemic.  Pandemics know no borders.  As the number of infections grows daily, it has become clear that no community will be spared its effects.

The leadership of the business community has never been more important than in times of crisis.  American businesses have been at the forefront of the response to the COVID-19 pandemic – from manufacturing essential medical supplies to providing support for first responders and healthcare professionals. 

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation has been tracking the contributions from businesses of all sizes and sectors that are helping combat the coronavirus. This tracker is updated daily, and we’d love to include your information.
