Having access to safe, secure and affordable housing is a basic human need that many people across the Capital Region struggle to attain. This fund supports organizations, programs, services and Strategic Initiatives of Victoria Foundation that meet the needs of the unhoused community and those who are precariously housed or at risk of losing housing. Grants from this fund will strengthen pathways to stable housing including housing support programs, pre-employment and life skills training, and activities that contribute to the prevention of homelessness.

Curious what types of organizations this fund supports?

Your gift to a Community Action Fund between January and May will be distributed through Victoria Foundation’s trusted granting program – the Community Grants Program.

Contributions made between June and December will be distributed into the community based on available granting fund balances and community needs within each cause area. For more information on how granting decisions are made from the Community Action Funds, contact our team.
