This morning (April 27th) Yellowknife Community Foundation revealed the Resilient Communities Fund to help Yellowknife rebuild as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Resilient Communities Fund will provide focused granting for projects that help the community recover and build resilience against the impacts of COVID-19 and future challenges.
The Foundation expects to start making grants from the Fund later this year.
Robin Greig, President of the Yellowknife Community Foundation says Since 1993, the generosity of Yellowknifers, past and present, has helped award over $1.6 million in grants and scholarships.
