This Fund is about our community coming together in new ways to respond to an urgent community crisis. covAID is one example of this.
The Community Foundation of Greater Peterborough and United Way Peterborough & District have partnered with local donors to launch the COVID-19 Community Response Fund. In the first round of grants, ten charities received $200,000 for securing food and shelter for vulnerable residents. In the second round of funding, ten charities received $110,500 for providing mental health supports to our community’s most vulnerable. Additional donations to the Community Response Fund will be distributed to the 18 participating charities by July.
One hundred percent of funds raised will be distributed in direct consultation with the recipient agencies. We all appreciate your support.
