Generosity, solidarity and community

We've been listening to local charities and non-profits. Many are on the frontlines serving critical needs and have seen an increased demand for their services. Others have had to cancel events or halt programs entirely due to the impacts of COVID-19 and social distancing. As the local community foundation, the CBT is working to bridge these gaps because we have an unwavering commitment to the strength and vitality of our region.

Visit our Giving Catalogue to browse the most critical needs of our region in response to COVID-19. Donors can make a contribution to one or more organizations via our online donation page. The CBT will cover all administrative costs and credit card transaction fees so that 100% of the donations will be directed towards critical needs. Donations to non-charities may be made directly through the links provided. 

We're in this together and small efforts can make a huge impact in our communities. Gifts of any size can make a difference.

What is #GivingTuesdayNow?

Over the past few weeks and months, the entire world has been coming together to stand up, help out, give back, and heal. Whether that's through donations to community organizations, celebrating doctors and nurses at shift changes, or reaching out to a neighbour to help with groceries, generosity has been helping the entire world get through this global pandemic. Together.

On May 5, 2020, #GivingTuesdayNow brings all sectors together in generosity for a global day of unity. We invite your organization to join us, in whatever way works for you, to rally support, thank your community, and encourage generosity in all forms. Let's rally. Together.
