The Winkler Community Foundation is proud to have partnered with Community Foundations of Canada and the Government of Canada to deliver the Government of Canada’s Emergency Community Support Fund (ECSF) in Winkler.
Launched on May 19, 2020, the Winkler Community Foundation invested $40,000 through the ECSF towards local charities and qualified donees supporting populations experiencing heightened vulnerability during this crisis. Our community foundation has granted the full funding available to our community through the first round of ECSF. A second round of ECSF of $30,000 was granted in November.
Since the start of the pandemic, charities and non-profit organizations have been leading the charge to assist those who need it most in the fight against COVID-19. We know the need for funding is still significant. We invite you to follow Community Foundations of Canada’s website for further updates.
