COVID-19 Response Statement

Kenora & Lake of the Woods Community Foundation is re-activating the Emergency Community Support Fund alongside Community Foundations of Canada

We are proud to be working with CFC and the Government of Canada to deliver funding locally within KLWCF’s catchment area to ensure that our citizens are safe and healthy. Through the ECSF, we will be granting an additional $30,000 towards local charities and qualified donees supporting people experiencing heightened vulnerability.

Applicants who received ECSF funding in Round 1 can submit an application in Round 2 for project costs which were not funded in Round 1. Applicants cannot receive funding twice for the same project costs. Applicants must submit a budget to identify new eligible costs.

Applicants who were declined in Round 1 of ECSF can submit an application for the same or different project costs, as long as funding for the project costs was not provided by any of the ECSF funding intermediaries in Round 1.

You’re our star
