2020 has not been easy on anybody, and for this True North Tale I sat down with the chair of The United Way NWT’s COVID-19 Committee. A committee whose hard work has already helped distribute eight hundred-Thousand dollars (800,000). Megan sat down with me and told me how the committee came together.
Megan went on to tell me that a large part of their 2020 was spent helping the community organizations in their community investment fund who had already received the grant pre-covid transition their programs that were in person to virtual substitutes. She went on to tell me that the next round of applicants for their community investment fund is open so if you are apart of a community organization check out the United Way NWT’s website for info on how to apply. One of the things Megan is most excited about is with the introduction of more virtual programs it allows other community organizations who maybe haven’t worked with the United Way NWT in the past to apply for grants. Megan would like to thank all of the community organizations and businesses who helped make 2020 an incredibly successful year for the United Way NWT
