Emergency Community Support Fund: Round 2

Funded by:

The Brockville and Area Community Foundation is re-activating the Emergency Community Support Fund alongside Community Foundations of Canada

The COVID-19 pandemic has been an unpredictable and challenging time for many, with some communities experiencing higher levels of vulnerability than others. Marginalized groups, youth, children and the elderly, essential workers, and newcomers are just some of the communities that have faced increased challenges. To provide emergency relief, the Government of Canada launched the Emergency Community Support Fund (ECSF) to help support communities made increasingly vulnerable by the pandemic.

With COVID-19 cases increasing in many communities, and a continuous call for emergency relief, the ECSF will reopen with a second round of funding, providing much-needed assistance to charities and non-profit organizations serving communities experiencing vulnerability. The Government of Canada is flowing this funding through Community Foundations of Canada, United Way Centraide Canada and the Canadian Red Cross. We are proud to be working with CFC and the Government of Canada to deliver funding locally within the United Counties of Leeds and Grenville to ensure that our citizens are safe and healthy. The Brockville and Area Community Foundation has received an additional $61,100, to invest towards local charities and qualified donees supporting people experiencing heightened vulnerability. Organizations can apply starting on October 5, 2020. As was the case in Round 1, we will be working in partnership with United Way Leeds & Grenville to collectively deliver $153,570 in pooled funds. In Round 1 of the ECSF program, this partnership enabled our two organizations to distribute approximately 425,000 to help over 36 agencies within Leeds and Grenville.

Applications will be accepted up until 11:59 pm PST, October 30, 2020. 

To learn more about the program and find out if your organization is eligible to apply, please go to the  CFC’s ECSF webpage, which includes all information applicants require to submit an application through the  CFC’s national application portal as of 10 a.m. EST Monday, October 5, 2020.

Welcome to the Brockville and Area Community Foundation’s website!

We invite you to explore our site to learn about the Foundation and how it works! The central goal of a community foundation is to strengthen the quality of life in the community primarily by building permanent funds that yield interest income that is used to support local charitable initiatives. But they are also much more than that…often acting to strengthen local charities by coordinating activities or supporting collaborative efforts. Please take a look at our site to learn more, or better yet, give us a call. We’d love to tell you about the ways we’ve been able to affect people’s lives.
