Community Service Recovery Fund

This fund is a collaboration between the Canadian Red Cross, Community Foundations of Canada, and United Way Centraide Canada to provide funding to Community Service Organizations, including non-profit organizations, Indigenous Governing Bodies or Registered Charities located in Canada. 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.

The Community Services Recovery Fund is a one-time investment from the Government of Canada of $400 million to help community service organizations (charities, non-profits, Indigenous governing bodies) 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.

Community Foundations of Canada led the Investing in Systems and Processes focus area with funding supporting one-time projects that invest in the systems and processes involved in creating the internal workings of an organization’s overall structure.

The Canadian Red Cross lead the Investing in People focus area, and United Way Centraide Canada lead the Investing in Program and Service Innovation and Design focus area.
