Over $6 Million Invested in the Community!

Thank You!             

Over 15,000 donations have been given to the Rapid Relief Fund, helping raise $6 million for local COVID-19 relief. Together with the Victoria Foundation, Times Colonist and the Jawl family , you’ve helped provide over 105 grants totalling over $6 million to organizations serving those who are less prepared to deal with the health, social and economic impacts of the pandemic.

Grants will continue to go out until all donations received are distributed. Please visit our Disbursements page for more information on grants from the fund.

Still Interested in Supporting COVID Community Relief Efforts? You Can!

Some of our community’s toughest days are still ahead of us.

The Foundation is working closely with our partners to understand evolving emergency relief needs, while also supporting the recovery and resilience of the civil society sector more broadly. Over the next six to 18 months, at minimum, there will be a need to support the sector’s financial health, including organizations working across all sectors such as the arts, environment, recreation and education areas that have not been eligible for Rapid Relief Fund support.

Donate here to the Rapid Relief Fund or visit our Community Action Funds page for more about how you can support recovery efforts.

If you are donating in support of a specific event, please make note of this in the comments section of the form below.
