The year 2020 stormed in and shook up the Nonprofit sector causing many organizations to deliver their critical programs and services while experiencing an extreme loss of revenue and with increased stress on employees. According to Imagine Canada’s sector monitoring report, 45% of charities are now reporting that while there is an increase in demand for their services, this demand is growing faster than their capacity.
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic’s effect on the Nonprofit sector, six local charitable partners have collaborated to create an innovative funding program called, The Sustainable Recovery Grant. The local funders include United Way Southern Interior BC, Interior Savings, Valley First, a division of First West Credit Union, Community Foundation of the North Okanagan, and Community Foundation of the South Okanagan Similkameen .
The Sustainable Recovery Grants program responds directly to the emerging and shifting needs of charities in the Southern Interior region of BC. While it is unusual for funders to work together in this way, the group recognizes that without support to specifically explore sustainable revenue models and strong internal capacity, our Nonprofits are at risk. The program provides grants for coaching and support focused on resilience and recovery in four key areas: revenue, operations, people and impact.
The 2021 Sustainability Grants have been awarded to seven charitable organizations for customized coaching and support through Purppl’s Resilience & Recovery Program, enabling recipients to focus on their specific sustainability needs and opportunities.
