The Sunshine Coast Foundation is stepping up to help local efforts to address the impacts of the covid-19 crisis. Many of our most vulnerable populations, such as those with mental health challenges, isolated seniors, youth and families living in poverty, and those in inadequate housing are disproportionately affected by the closure of local facilities or reduction in services. The Sunshine Coast Covid-19 Emergency Relief Fund will provide grants to local organizations whose programs and services benefit these populations, or whose operations are jeopardized by financial cut backs and fundraising challenges.

You can make a difference today by contributing to this fund. 100% of the gifts received by the Foundation will be distributed through this fund to support local efforts.
