Ontario Sailing is pleased to announce a
COVID Recovery Fund
in Support of
To date, Ontario Sailing recognizes that many of our member organizations have not qualified for grants and financial supports offered by the government during the COVID pandemic and even those organizations that have qualified for funding, still face financial challenges from increased costs moving forward. As such, Ontario Sailing decided to allocate a portion of funding we received from the federal government to support member organizations directly with small financial grants. While over $50,000 has been designated for direct member organization support, given the number of member organizations, it is anticipated that the maximum of any single grant would be $1,000. We anticipate a large number of our members will apply and we will make efforts to provide support to as many as possible.
We recognize that each organization has different needs and each of you have been impacted by COVID differently. The intent of these funds represents a small amount of support as you recover from the impacts in 2020 and prepare for the upcoming year. We don’t know what 2021 will bring but we do know that it will likely continue to look different, with the pandemic having a long-lasting impact on how we all operate.
Main contacts for all member organizations received information on the Fund and how to apply last week. We look forward to being able to confirm with recipients in early February.
