Community Services Recovery Fund
The Community Services Recovery Fund is a one-time investment of $400 million to help community service organizations (Registered Charities, non-profit organizations, Indigenous Governing Bodies located in Canada) adapt, modernize and be better equipped to improve the efficacy, accessibility and sustainability of the community services that they provide through the pandemic recovery and beyond. The Community Services Recovery Fund generated significant interest from Community Service Organizations from coast to coast to coast. The funds were allocated through three funding streams: Investing in People (The Canadian Red Cross), Investing in Systems and Processes (Community Foundations of Canada), and Investing in Program & Service Innovation & Redesign (The United Way Centraide Canada).
The St. Albert Community Foundation (SACF) recognizes that charities and non-profit organizations led the charge to assist those in need before, during and after the pandemic. The Community Services Recovery Fund responds to what Community Service Organizations need right now, and supports organizations as they adapt to the long-term impacts of the pandemic. We acknowledge that the demand far exceeded the funding amounts available, and as a result, SACF was only able to fund a small portion of the many projects that applied.
The St. Albert Community Foundation was proud to be able to grant all of its $365,000 allocated funds to invest in Community Service Organizations in St. Albert and Sturgeon County.
