The Emergency Community Support Fund (ECSF) is funded by the Government of Canada and administered by the Community Foundations of Canada, Red Cross and United Way. The first round of this funding was open from May until the end of July. The second round will be open the application portal from October 5-30, 2020. The goal of this funding is to help charities who help the most vulnerable in our communities that are affected by COVID-19.

As well, the Community Foundations of Canada has further information and a webinar you can access at this link: Community Foundations of Canada – ECSF. Here is a link to the application portal.
