With the goal of medium to long-term recovery efforts, the Ontario Trillium Foundation has created a one-time fund to support the non-profit sector in the province of Ontario. With the focus of providing recovery funding for those hit hardest by the COVID-19 pandemic, the program was built to provide proper funding for these organizations to both recover and rebuild from the catastrophic impact of the global pandemic.
As an agency of the province, the Ontario Trillium Foundation (OTF) is one of Canada’s leading granting foundations, awarding $108 million worth of funding in 2019 alone. With an investment strategy that is founded on building stronger and more connected communities, the OTF has been investing in the province for over 30 years.
The Resilient Communities Fund aims to provide flexible financing spread over two separate deadlines, allowing for ample time to address the needs of each applying organization and support them where they need it most.
