En Français

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 of Calgary and Area 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 non-profits need right now and supports organizations as they adapt to the long-term impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic

Community Service Organizations can apply from January 6, 2023 until February 21, 2023.

Organizations that are Non-Qualified Donees (e.g. Incorporated Non-profits) must apply in partnership with a Qualified Donee (e.g., Registered Charity) who will act as the fiduciary agent for the project, meaning they will sign the funding agreement and manage the funding on behalf of the Non-Qualified Donee. The application must be filled out naming the Qualified Donee as the Lead Applicant with the name of Non-Qualified Donee and a note indicating the trustee relationship entered in Question 6 (Collaboration). In this case, the Qualified Donee can submit an additional CSRF application for their own organization if desired.
