How you can help
The impact of COVID-19 is more challenging for Winnipeg’s most vulnerable. You can help local front-line agencies provide essential support during this difficult time.
The COVID-19 Community Response Fund allows us to quickly direct funds to organizations who need it most to address their most pressing needs.
COVID-19 Response Grants
Our initial response was to provide immediate support for lead charitable organizations providing shelter and food services, and agencies that support less advantaged communities.
Our Grants Team will continue to monitor community developments throughout this difficult time.
If your registered charity is continuing to offer programming during the COVID-19 pandemic and requires immediate financial assistance to meet the needs of the community, please email our Grants Team.
