Community Foundation of Kawartha Lakes has granted the full funding available to our community through the ECSF. We are unfortunately no longer accepting applications.

Since the start of the pandemic, charities and non-profit organizations have been leading the charge to assist those who need it most in the fight against COVID-19. We know the need for funding is still significant. If you would like to be notified if any additional funding becomes available through ECSF, please fill out this form.

We invite you to explore opportunities with the other ECSF funding intermediaries in your community. More information about other national funders is available here.
