Covid-19

Local Love

in a

Global Crisis

Help the most vulnerable as our
community responds to COVID-19.

COVID-19 Community Response Fund

The Community Response Fund is made available through a partnership with United Way Central Alberta and The Red Deer & District Community Foundation. We are also coordinating efforts with Red Deer & District FCSS who are managing the funds made available by the Government of Alberta. 

This Community Response Grant is available to assist registered charities with a short-term urgent funding need created by the COVID-19 global crisis.

WE ARE IN THIS TOGETHER
TOGETHER WE CAN KEEP OUR COMMUNITY STRONG.

We know that in our communities many people could not, and cannot, afford to adequately prepare for how COVID-19 is affecting their family. Many do not have supports, should they need to self-isolate. Those who already face barriers—things like poverty, homelessness and social isolation—need even more help during this time. The needs will continue to evolve. But, as you protect your family and those closest to you to keep them healthy, we urge you to think of those who may need the help of their neighbours.

When you give, you will help provide:

BASIC NEEDS

Ensure people have access to life’s essentials, such as food.

SOCIAL ISOLATION

Ensure that while vulnerable people are isolated, they are also supported.

CAPACITY

Ensure that community partners can continue to do their vital local work.
