LOCAL ORGANIZATION RECEIVES FUNDING THROUGH GOVERNMENT OF CANADA’S COMMUNITY SERVICES RECOVERY FUND
BARRIE, ONTARIO, (November 3, 2023) – Kempenfelt Community Players (KCP) is pleased to announce that it is the recipient of funding from the Government of Canada’s Community Services Recovery Fund (CSRF).
About the Community Services Recovery Fund
The Community Services Recovery Fund is a one-time $400 million investment from the Government of Canada to support community service organizations, including charities, non-profits and Indigenous governing bodies, as they adapt and modernize their organizations. From the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, community service organizations, including charities, non-profits and Indigenous governing bodies, across Canada have shown impressive stamina and creativity in their response to the diverse and increasingly challenging needs of their communities.
The Community Services Recovery Fund responded to what community service organizations, including charities, non-profits and Indigenous governing bodies, needed and supports them as they adapt to the long-term organizational changes. The Government of Canada is delivering the Community Services Recovery Fund through three National Funders – Canadian Red Cross, Community Foundations of Canada, and United Way Centraide Canada. The National Funders have distributed funding to eligible community service organizations, including charities, non-profits, and Indigenous governing bodies, providing services in communities across Canada.
“I am continually impressed by the passion, dedication, and creativity of community service organizations, like Kempenfelt Community Players. I am equally proud the Government of Canada has supported their important work through the Community Services Recovery Fund. By investing in these organizations and their projects we can help to create a more just and equitable society, where everyone has opportunities to succeed. I look forward to seeing the positive impact of this investment in Barrie over the years to come.”
– Jenna Sudds, Minister of Families, Children and Social Development
