Emergency Community Support Fund

Round 2 open October 5 - 30, 2020

The Prince George Community Foundation is pleased to participate in the second round of funding for the Emergency Community Support Fund. 

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. The Government of Canada is flowing funds through national networks, including Community Foundations of Canada, United Way Centraide Canada and the Canadian Red Cross. We are proud to be working with CFC and the Government of Canada to deliver funding for Prince George and our Regional Partners to ensure that our most vulnerable citizens are safe and healthy. ThroughRound 2 of the ECSF, we will be investing an additional $131,840 towards local charities and qualified donees supporting vulnerable populations. Organizations can apply from October 5 - 30, 2020.  Learn more about the program and find out if your organization is eligible to apply.

Applicants can apply for up to $10,000 for Round 2.
