Edmonton Community Foundation is proud to have worked with community foundations across Canada as part of the Community Services Recovery Fund.
This fund is a collaboration between Canadian Red Cross, Community Foundations of Canada, and United Way Centraide Canada to provide funding to Community Service Organizations, including non-profit organizations, Indigenous Governing Bodies or Registered Charities located in Canada. The Community Services Recovery Fund (CSRF) responds to what Community Service Organizations need right now and supports organizations as they adapt to the long-term impacts of the pandemic.
The CSRF is a one-time investment of $400 million to help community service organizations (charities, non-profits, Indigenous governing bodies) adapt, modernize and be better equipped to improve the efficacy, accessibility and sustainability of the community services that they provide through the pandemic recovery and beyond.
As part of our commitment to bolstering the community, ECF has diligently supported local charities through the Investment in Systems and Processes stream. This strategic approach has enabled us to facilitate grants for essential upgrades in IT systems, booking services, cybersecurity, and other vital behind-the-scenes operations. By empowering organizations with improved infrastructure, we ensure they are better equipped to serve their communities efficiently and effectively.
Through the CSRF, ECF was able to provide 30 local organizations with grants totaling over $2.17 million.
