Across the country, community foundations are working hard to provide COVID-19 specific programming and measures to help support those impacted by the virus. The following grant programs are available to support organizations making a difference in our community:
The Campbellford/Seymour Community Foundation launched the COVID-19 Community Response Grants on April 23, 2020 in partnerships with the Municipality of Trent Hills. These grants are intended to support the work of our Trent Hills organizations who are at the forefront of this issue and collectively striving to ensure our most vulnerable citizens are safe and healthy.
We are proud to announce that $49,460.00 of the $50,000.00 available has been awarded!
Vulnerable populations across Canada continue to be disproportionately affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Marginalized groups, youth, children and the elderly, essential workers, and newcomers are just some of the communities that are facing increased challenges right now.
Launched on May 19, 2020, the Government of Canada’s new Emergency Community Support Fund (ECSF) aims to provide additional and much-needed assistance to charities and non-profit organizations serving vulnerable populations.
We are proud to be working with CFC and the Government of Canada to deliver funding locally to ensure that our most vulnerable citizens are safe and healthy. Through the ECSF, we will be investing and additional $75,000.00 towards local charities and qualified donees supporting vulnerable populations. Organizations can apply starting on May 19, 2020.
