FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Community compassion during COVID-19
DATELINE: March 18, 2020 Edmonton, AB
Edmonton Community Foundation (ECF) supports our community’s efforts to remain safe and resilient during the evolving COVID-19 pandemic.
There will be short- and long-term impacts on our community and coordinated, thoughtful support will be vital to addressing emerging needs.
To ensure this support is available, the health and safety of our staff and stakeholders is key.
While we always prefer to meet in person, we are committed to doing our part to stem the spread of COVID-19. While many ECF staff members will be working from home until further notice, ECF is open for business with some on-site staff.
As we navigate this time of uncertainty, all our staff will be available by phone, email and other digital platforms. If you wish to make a charitable donation we encourage you to visit our online giving page. However, you can still mail your gifts to us or drop your gift off in person if you have no other option. If you visit our offices we have health and safety measures in place to reduce the risk.
We will get through this. Our community is stronger because of you.
