Emergency Community Support Fund - support for communities coast to coast to coast

We are proud to have partnered with Community Foundations of Canada and the Government of Canada to deliver the Government of Canada's Emergency Community Support Fund (ECSF) across Nova Scotia

Launched on May 19, 2020, we've invested $1.12M through the ECSF towards local charities and qualified donees supporting populations experiencing heightened vulnerability during this crisis.

We invite you to click on the image below to see some of the amazing initiatives that have been supported with the aid of these funds.

Please note:

Our community foundation has granted the full funding available to our community through the ECSF. We are unfortunately no longer accepting applications. Since the start of the pandemic, charities and non-profit organizations have been leading the charge to assist those who need it most in the fight against COVID-19. We know the need for funding is still significant. If you would like to be notified if any additional funding becomes available through ECSF, please fill out this form

We invite you to explore opportunities with the other ECSF funding intermediaries in your community. More information about other national funders is available here


We invite you to follow the Community Foundations of Canada's website for further updates as well.
