Information on our COVID-19 Funds and how you can participate in contributing monetarily in our community.
We have two COVID-19 Funds. The Better Together COVID-19 Response fund, responding to the current challenges of our local organizations, will support recovery of these essential organizations, and will lead in supporting the rebuilding of our region for the wellbeing of all citizens. And the Community Kitchen and Foodbank Fund, designated to support the Grande Prairie Friendship Centre Community Kitchen hot meal program and Salvation Army Foodbank needs.
The Government of Alberta has chosen the Community Foundation of Northwestern Alberta (CFNWAB) as one of seven charitable organizations of which they will match donations up to $2 million to Alberta-based charities and non-profit organizations with COVID-19 fundraising campaigns. Monetary donations received for one of our COVID-19 Funds between April 15th- May 31st will be eligible for this matching opportunity.
The CFNWAB are waiving any administration fees associated with campaign donations made to either of our COVID-19 Funds.
Thank you to our community for your continued support of our region!
