The Dufferin Emergency Support Fund was created to support charities and qualified donees in times of emergency anywhere in Dufferin County.
Funds donated to the Dufferin Emergency Support Fund are non-endowed, meaning donations are not locked in for long term; any donations received plus any earnings in the fund are available for distribution only when a state of emergency has been declared for Dufferin County or any part of Dufferin County.
All registered charities that operate in Dufferin County as well as qualified donees (not for profit agencies or groups officially partnered with a registered charity or municipality.) are eligible to receive support. We will provide funds in the September to December 2020 time frame.
Dufferin Emergency Support Fund will appeal to donors who are unsure of which charity is most in need, and rely on the judgement of the Foundation to disburse funds where impact is a priority.
