The COVID-19 pandemic
COVID-19 is having a deep impact on all of us, as individuals and families, employees and employers and as community members. The weeks and months ahead will undoubtedly be a long and difficult recovery. The Stratford Perth Community Foundation is responding in several ways.
Emergency Community Support Fund
The Stratford Perth Community Foundation will provide $201,860 through the Government of Canada’s Emergency Community Support Fund to support local charities responding to COVID-19.
Charitable Response Fund
The Stratford Perth Community Foundation has established a Charitable Response Fund with an initial $30,000 to address both the urgent needs of community-based organizations and their emerging needs in the weeks and months ahead.
Like you, we envision a vibrant, not-for-profit sector in Stratford, St. Marys and Perth County. To help achieve this we have created sustainable funding resources for each of our six geographies. These Smart & Caring Community Funds will respond to the ever-changing needs of our communities.
Over three years, we created Smart & Caring Community Funds in Stratford and North Perth in 2015, St. Marys and Perth South in 2016 and Perth East and West Perth in 2017. Each fund is being built by the people and for the people in that community to support its critical priorities, key projects and ongoing needs.
Meaning, donations raised in each community will benefit that community, now and forever.
