The Community Services Recovery Fund is a $400 million investment from the Government of Canada to support charities and non-profits as they focus on how to adapt their organizations for pandemic recovery.
The Squamish Community Foundation is working along side community foundations from across Canada and in collaboration with the Canadian Red Cross, United Way and Community Foundations of Canada to distribute funding. This fund supports Community Service Organizations including non-profit organizations, Indigenous Governing Bodies and Registered Charities located in Canada.
The Squamish Community Foundation is administering $155,000 to local charities and non-profit organizations under the Project Focus Area: Investing in Systems and Processes.
This funding supports one-time projects that invest in the systems and processes involved in creating the internal workings of an organization’s overall structure. To have a local application assessed and funded locally, this is the Project Focus Area a Squamish organization should apply to. Applications for the other Project Focus Areas will be assessed by national organizations along with all other applications from across the country.
Examples of projects primarily focused on Systems and Processes may include: Investment in contact management systems; Implementation of a new communications plan; Enhancement of a new accounting system; Development, implementation, or adaptation of a new fundraising strategy; A governance review through the lens of organizational resilience.
