Vancouver Foundation: Recovery and Resiliency Fund
The Recovery and Resiliency Fund is a ground-breaking new fund made possible through the Government of BC's historic $30 million investment in British Columbia's non-profit sector. Thanks to a partnership between the Government of BC, Vancouver Foundation, United Way BC, and New Relationship Trust the fund will distribute $34 million to charitable and non-profit organizations, including a $4 million investment from Vancouver Foundation.
This Fund will provide flexible, three-year grants of $50,000 and $72,000 per year to eligible organizations that have been disproportionately impacted by the pandemic. $5 million of the Fund will go to New Relationship Trust to grant directly to Indigenous-led organizations with annual revenues of more than $1 million.
Funding will be distributed amongst those in need in our community as follows:
- funding Indigenous-led organizations with annual expenses of any size
- funding non-Indigenous organizations with annual expenses of less than $1 million
- funding proportionately more organizations located in and/or operating in rural areas
- funding proportionately more organizations in full partnership with, or led by, equity-denied communities that center the communities they represent
Application Deadline is September 30, 2022
