COVID-19: Charitable Response Fund

The Stratford Perth Community Foundation has established a Charitable Response Fund with an initial $30,000. The pandemic will have lasting implications for charities in every sector we serve. This new fund will bridge gaps and compliment existing efforts providing support to community-based organizations for the vital services they provide, and support recovery needs in the weeks and months ahead.

Over the next few months, we will continue to learn more about local needs and assess how we can best support our community. For all donations received into our Charitable Response Fund, we will:

  • Cover all the administrative costs and online transaction fees to ensure 100% of every donation received to the Charitable Response Fund supports local charities in the months ahead.
  • Publicly list the grantees of the Charitable Response Fund, as well our Community Grants Program.
  • Provide charitable tax receipts for all donations over $20.

To donate now, please complete the form below.
