Letter from Gilead: Message from Amy Flood:
Supporting our friends and partners
  Dear grantees,
As we adjust to the changes COVID-19 is bringing to our lives, workplaces and communities we want to let you know that Gilead stands with you. There is a lot of uncertainty right now, but we remain confident in one thing: your commitment to provide the best possible care to the people you serve, no matter what obstacles stand in your way.
The passion and creativity you bring to tackling our most formidable public health challenges - including Hepatitis C and HIV - is exactly why we chose to partner with your organization. We have no doubt you will bring the same commitment to help your community deal with the current COVID-19 outbreak.
We also want to make sure you know this crisis will not impact our current grant to your organization. We want to do what we can to support you in these unprecedented times, and that requires providing additional flexibility. While we certainly hope that programming and critical services continue, it's very likely that some deliverables won't be met, events and activities will be cancelled, and grant reporting will be delayed. That is all ok - we’re not suspending our grants at a time when you need support more than ever.
Our team is actively exploring a variety of options to ensure our community partners remain financially sustainable for the long term. Once we have solidified those plans, we will communicate the options directly to you. In the interim, please don't hesitate to contact your grants manager if there is something your organization immediately needs. Your organization continues to be essential to the communities you serve, now more than ever before.
Together as one community, we will weather this crisis and our community will be stronger and more resilient as a result. We are grateful for all you do. Amy Flood
