St. Albert Community Foundation(SACF) launches new Emergency Community Support Fund
Vulnerable populations across Canada continue to be disproportionately affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Marginalized groups, youth, children and the elderly, essential workers, and newcomers are just some of the communities that are facing increased challenges right now.
Launched on May 19, 2020, the Government of Canada’s new Emergency Community Support Fund (ECSF) aims to provide additional and much-needed assistance to charities and non-profit organizations serving vulnerable populations. The Government of Canada is flowing funds through national networks, including 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 in the St. Albert and surrounding area to ensure that our most vulnerable citizens are safe and healthy.
Through the ECSF, SACF will be investing an additional $ 40,000 towards local charities and qualified donees supporting vulnerable populations.
Organizations can apply starting on May 19, 2020.

Our CommunityWe're a community with many traditions. But one tradition that ties us together is a tradition of giving...giving back to the community and giving to those who need our help.
The St. Albert Community Foundation reflects that tradition of giving.
The St. Albert Community Foundation is an organization founded in 1997 and was created and is managed by a group of St. Albert residents who believe in charity, philanthropy, and the importance of community. Visit our Blog to learn about upcoming events and news from the foundation.
St. Albert residents know full well the gift of community which St. Albert has bestowed upon them. Over the last 150 years, the City has enriched the professional and personal lives of hundreds of thousands of citizens. The St. Albert Community Foundation provides a flexible vehicle through which grateful citizens may repay the community and its future generations.
We hope that you will join us in this great philanthropic enterprise by starting your own family endowment fund or considering us as part of your long term planning for charitable giving. With your help, we can continue to assist local charities in ensuring a healthy community "for generations to come."
