Did you know we were a part of the Emergency Community Support Fund? This great initiative is a $350 million fund implemented with Community Foundations of Canada, the Canadian Red Cross, and United Way Centraide Canada, in partnership with local community foundations across the country. Its goal is to provide support to charities and non-profit organizations serving vulnerable Canadians. Through our partnership with CFC Canada, the BC Interior Community Foundation was able to fund 22 local organizations in our region with $219,490.00 over 2 rounds of funding.
