Between March and July 2020, The Foundation supported the community with more than $12.8 million in COVID-19-related grants
STABILIZATION GRANTS support the short- and medium-term financial needs of local charities affected by revenue loss and unexpected expenses due to the COVID-19 pandemic. There were 279 charities that shared in the $8.9 million. Grants were allocated in mid-July.
COVID-19 EMERGENCY RESPONSE GRANTS provided immediate support for charities caring for basic needs of those experiencing vulnerability in our community. More than 120 grants were distributed between March 13 and June 2.
EMERGENCY COMMUNITY SUPPORT FUND from the Government of Canada makes funding available to charities serving vulnerable populations disproportionately impacted by COVID-19. The Winnipeg Foundation worked with national umbrella group Community Foundations of Canada, along with local partners Canadian Red Cross and United Way Winnipeg, to deliver the program. Funds were delivered in June and July.
THANK YOU TO THE GENEROUS DONORS WHO MAKE THIS COMMUNITY SUPPORT POSSIBLE.
