Last year was a challenging year for our community, country, and the world. The SKW Community Fund application program was suspended and replaced it with the COVID-19 Relief Fund.
Ruth Hook, Chair of the Chatham Kent Community Foundation, said, “Last March, the Foundation decided to suspend our usual round of grants, and we quickly created the CKCF COVID-19 Relief Fund. We streamlined our grant review process, and along with the South Kent Wind Community Fund Advisory Committee, we were able to disburse over $440,000 in emergency relief grants.”
“In these challenging times, we are proud to help our community by providing support to important local causes and organizations, which are integral to making Chatham Kent the place we call home,” said Kevin Aikenhead, Facility Manager, South Kent Wind.
