Calgary Foundation is using this list as a starting point to see which urgent needs meet the criteria for Pandemic Recovery Program grants.

Your profile will continue to be viewed by donors and the wider community.
Launched on March 31, 2020, Calgary Foundation has invested $7 million dollars to support local charities and Treaty 7 Nations through the Pandemic Recovery Program – Relief Phase. Calgary Foundation will be opening new Recovery Phase funding in the fall. Details are still in the works – please keep an eye on the Pandemic Recovery Program webpage for updates.
HOW TO BEST UTILIZE THIS PAGE: What are your funding priorities specifically resulting from COVID-19? How much do they cost? Break it down to make it easy for potential donors to support you. Keep it brief and provide a longer description on your website or donate page if necessary.
PLEASE NOTE: If you have already registered your charity for help through the Canada Helps COVID-19 Pandemic Response page, simply provide a brief description and link to your Canada Helps page ( in the “link to website or donation page” field below), so as to avoid duplication of your work.
