COVID-19 Emergency Response Fund
This granting stream is intended to offer resources for the community where it’s needed most and will support urgent issues, particularly those being experienced disproportionately within vulnerable sectors. In keeping with the intentions of Robert & Florence Filberg Fund, the funding source, the funds will be directed to support organizations focused on child welfare in the broadest sense, and religious organizations/churches providing services to our community. To supplement the Filberg funds available, the Comox Valley Community Foundation will open a COVID-19 Emergency Response Fund for donations from individuals and organizations. All donations made to the COVID-19 Emergency Response Fund will be granted in full to charities working on response efforts in our community. Funds will be released on a rolling basis as fundraising continues throughout this public health crisis and its recovery phases. This will enable us to move resources quickly and adapt to evolving needs.
