The Community Foundation of Lethbridge and Southwestern Alberta is shifting its spring grant programs to focus on the needs of frontline charitable organizations, as they navigate the COVID-19 crisis.

This year, the Community Priorities, Henry S. Varley Fund for Rural Life and Youth in Action grants will enable the Community Foundation to allocate $375,000 to local organizations that provide services for food, shelter, healthcare and families with children. It will also support recovery efforts for those organizations in the months ahead.

“We are very fortunate in that we have a large, unrestricted fund, which has always allowed us to respond to the most pressing needs of the day,” says Community Foundation Executive Director, Charleen Davidson.

Applications for grant funding are being accepted on the Community Foundation website, from now until April 17.

In addition, the Community Foundation says all donations it receives for COVID-19 response and recovery will go back to support the local community.

I started my radio career in 2015, shortly after graduating from Lethbridge College. I have a very strong passion for local news.

Proudly born in 1994, I grew up most of my life in Sylvan Lake, AB and I’ve lived in the Lethbridge since 2012. I’m a below average golfer on a good day, I take as many hiking trips to Waterton as possible in the summer and I love my two cats, Outlaw and Jynx, and my dog, Maverick, more than most people I know.

I look forward to providing accurate, timely news coverage in southern Alberta for plenty of years to come!
