“The Community Services Recovery Fund will change the reality for thousands of charities, non-profits and Indigenous governing bodies from coast to coast to coast. Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, these organizations have stood up for and supported their communities. We will be forever grateful for their efforts. Now, through this Fund, community foundations will support projects at charities, non-profits and Indigenous governing bodies that invest in their internal systems and processes, making them more resilient for the future.”
– Andrea Dicks, President, Community Foundations of Canada
The Carleton North Community Foundation was launched in 2008 with a $2-million donation from The McCain Foundation as part of the celebrations marking the 50th anniversary of McCain Foods. Its Board of Directors is made up of 12 community leaders from the Carleton North Region.
The Foundation supports a variety of eligible initiatives under categories such as Arts & Culture, Education, Beautification, Economic Development, Recreation, Health & Wellness, and Environment.
Funds donated to the Foundation are invested and the proceeds are used to support local charitable organizations, registered Canadian amateur athletic associations, local schools and hospitals, and projects supported by federal, provincial or municipal governments or a government agency.
Eligible organizations in the Carleton North area are encouraged to apply to the Foundation. Applications are available at the Andrew and Laura McCain Library, Town Halls in Bath, Florenceville-Bristol and Centreville, and this website.

EMERGENCY COMMUNITY SUPPORT FUND
The COVID-19 pandemic has been an unpredictable and challenging time for many, with some communities experiencing higher levels of vulnerability than others. Marginalized groups, youth, children and the elderly, essential workers, and newcomers are just some of the communities that have faced increased challenges. To provide emergency relief, the Government of Canada launched the Emergency Community Support Fund (ECSF) to help support communities made increasingly vulnerable by the pandemic.
With COVID-19 cases increasing in many communities, and a continuous call for emergency relief, the ECSF will reopen with a second round of funding, providing much-needed assistance to charities and non-profit organizations serving communities experiencing vulnerability. The Government of Canada is flowing this funding through Community Foundations of Canada, United Way Centraide Canada and the Canadian Red Cross. We are proud to be working with CFC and the Government of Canada to deliver funding locally to ensure that our citizens are safe and healthy. Through the ECSF, we will be investing $30,000 towards local charities and qualified donees supporting people experiencing heightened vulnerability. Organizations can apply starting on October 5, 2020.
