Yorkton & District Community Foundation is pleased to have partnered with Community Foundations of Canada and the Government of Canada to deliver the Government of Canada’s Emergency Community Support Fund (ECSF) in Yorkton and surrounding communities.
Through round 1 of the ECSF, $75,000 was made available in Yorkton and surrounding communities to assist local charities and qualified donees supporting populations experiencing heightened vulnerability during this crisis. We are pleased to announce that the following grants were awarded in June /July.
The Government of Canada’s $350 million Emergency Community Support Fund (ECSF) is helping community organizations adapt frontline services to better meet the needs of people experiencing heightened vulnerability during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The ECSF first opened to receive applications on May 19, 2020. In June and July the Yorkton & District Community Foundation awarded $75,000 in grants to local charities as noted above. Nationally the first round of funding supported projects in every province and territory and for every vulnerable group. The Fund’s three intermediaries – Community Foundations of Canada, the Canadian Red Cross and United Way Centraide Canada – combined their national reach and local expertise to flow money quickly to where it was most needed.
The balance of the ECSF is now being made available to support communities continuing to address the impact of the pandemic. Yorkton & District Community Foundation will be granting a total of $30,000 in this second round. Qualified donees can begin submitting applications from October 5 to 30, 2020 and grants will be awarded early in November, 2020.
