FinCap Friday: When Good Goes Viral

Mar 19, 2020
FinCap Friday


More school closures are occurring across the country and we want to be sure to provide resources you can assign to students remotely. Along with the usual slides for FinCap Friday, an Edpuzzle version of each episode will be available weekly. 


In this FinCap Friday we check out some of the positive news surrounding philanthropic efforts occurring as a response to coronavirus. From companies to celebrities to ordinary people, many Americans are getting creative about how they can do their part to help those most vulnerable during this time. Who are some of the biggest names involved? What are some of the acts of kindness? Find out this and more in this week's episode of FinCap Friday below: 

If you're short on time, try our simplified FinCap Friday (No Tech) with the questions embedded right into the slide deck!


Check out all of our FinCap Friday episodes here. They're not date-dependent so any of the 50+ in our catalog dating back to August 2018 can work throughout the coming year!
