This Fund is about our community coming together in new ways to respond to an urgent community crisis. covAID is one example of this.
As of June 24, 2020, the Community Foundation, in partnership with United Way Peterborough & District and donors have contributed $367,500 towards housing, food and mental health supports for local vulnerable residents during the pandemic. Since March 16th, close to 150 donors have contributed to the COVID-19 Community Response Fund for three rounds of funding. Thirty-two (32) grants have been made to 18 local charities – thank-you donors!
One hundred percent of funds raised will be distributed in direct consultation with the recipient agencies. We all appreciate your support.
