Community will come through

Imagine a world where non-profit/charity organizations and community groups had access to a big pool of community funds. Funds that were made available for events, community projects or to help those less fortunate.

Raising money isn’t a skill most people come by naturally. And, it is that much more difficult for volunteer run community groups. They don’t have a dedicated fundraising team and volunteers wear multiple hats. Just keeping the doors open or projects going, can feel like a never-end-ing task. And then…throw in a pandemic.

When non-profit/charities are unable to deliver services and programs, and can’t keep up to the demand, it means that some individuals don’t receive the support they need. Demand is expected to continue to increase in the coming months, as people start to re-engage with their communities.
