A Letter to Our Community

We hope this message finds you all well and adjusting to life in our community as we witness unprecedented changes in response to COVID-19.

You have all been in our thoughts as we consider how best to support Squamish in crisis and make sense of almost daily changes in information regarding health, investments, and sustainability.  Please know that all of us at Squamish Community Foundation is here to help and support you and it is precisely at this stressful time that we want to feel connected to each other and the community.

We know that building capacity may feel especially challenging right now, which is why we’ve made some changes to our grants at this time and will be launching a fundraising campaign to provide relief efforts to Squamish not-for-profits.

Neighbourhood Small Grants will be extending the deadline to apply until further notice. Any applications that are in alignment with current health regulations – social distancing/isolation, yet bring people together will be considered more immediately.

Annual Grants are now open for applications. The deadline to apply is May 31st and we have agreed to expedite the process to be able to give successful applicants funds in June rather than October for more immediate relief.

If you wish to support us in our efforts providing funding to front-line services at this time, please join our campaign HERE.

Any inquiries can be directed to info@squamishfoundation.com.Stay healthy!

Sincerely,
Ann Marie McKenzie + the Squamish Community Foundation Board
