Thanks to the generosity of donors, $4.32 million from the Victoria Foundation’s Community Grants Program will help 191 local organizations, strengthening the non-profit sector and long-term resilience of our community.


The funds are providing federally-registered charities and qualified donees in the capital region with flexible, general operating funds, assisting them in continuing to offer services and will help to provide financial security now and into the future. These funds will allow these organizations to support vulnerable communities affected by the pandemic and strengthen the charitable sector that is vital to the health and well-being of our community.

Of the total amount being granted through the program, over $1.53 million has come from direct donations
made either to the Community Action Funds or from Donor Advised Funds over the past few months. Our gratitude is beyond measure.
