United Way Waterloo Region Communities takes part in the Community Services Recovery Fund

A $400 million investment in charities and non-profits  

Now more than ever, charities and non-profits are playing a key role in addressing persistent and complex social problems faced by all Canadians. The Community Services Recovery Fund is a $400 million investment from the Government of Canada to support charities and non-profits as they build resilience by making investments in their people, organizations, and program innovation.  

United Way Waterloo Region Communities is proud to be taking part in the Community Services Recovery Fund, a collaboration between United Way Centraide Canada, Canadian Red Cross, and Community Foundations of Canada to provide funding to Community Service Organizations, including non-profit organizations, Indigenous Governing Bodies, and Registered Charities located across Canada. The Community Services Recovery Fund responds to what charities and nonprofits need right now and supports organizations as they adapt to the long-term impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.  

Locally, we will be partnering with Waterloo Region Community Foundation, and the Red Cross to assist organizations across Waterloo Region. 

Community Service Organizations can apply from January 6, 2023 until February 21, 2023. Visit www.communityservicesrecoveryfund.ca to find out more about how to apply, explore resources for applicants, and sign up for upcoming webinars. 

We will share more information on our funding page as it becomes available.
