As the COVID-19 outbreak continues to spread, we at The Solomon Foundation (TSF) are working diligently to insure we can protect our staff, maintain our day to day operations and serve our churches and investors all across the country. On Thursday our leadership team established a COVID-19 Task Force that will help us manage any affects the crisis may cause for TSF. I have asked Renee Little, our SVP of Special Projects, to lead this task force, joining her on this team will be Sarah Roberts, SVP of Operations, and Rebekah Graham, SVP and Controller. They are meeting daily to assess our business continuity plan to ensure top quality customer service.
1. How will the COVID-19 affect our staff:
- We have and will continue to maintain a clean and healthy work environment.
- We have implemented and tested the ability for our staff to work remotely if necessary.
- We have placed a two-week travel ban on our staff with limited exceptions.
2. How will the COVID-19 affect our day to day operations:
- As part of the business continuity plan, on Friday all operations of TSF were ran remotely. I am pleased to report all operations ran with no interruptions.
- Our offices will resume normal operations on Monday, March 16.
- Our reserve funds at TSF are NOT invested in the stock market which eliminates our exposure to the market volatility.
3. How will the COVID-19 affect churches?
- We are monitoring the impact on church services across the US.
- We are closely following the cancelations, closings and government announcements in each state.
- We have set up a private Facebook page and beginning Tuesday, we will be holding a weekly Zoom call to connect, resource and encourage Pastors.
We know these are uncertain times for all of us and we also know that God is in control! “For God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control”. (2 Timothy 1:7)
