2020 Grants

2020 was a year of challenges and changes.  Here at the Astley Family Foundation, we did some things the same as previous years and also made changes due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Lyle S. Hallman Foundation, United Way Waterloo Region Communities, Kitchener Waterloo Community Foundation, Social Venture Partners Waterloo Region, The Astley Family Foundation, Fairmount Foundation and Cambridge & North Dumfries Community Foundation recently joined forces to maximize assistance for urgent and emerging community needs in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The funder’s collective is working together to raise and distribute funds to front line organizations that are striving to ensure our most vulnerable citizens and those that support them remain supported, safe and healthy.

The Astley Family Foundation contributed $71,000 to the total pool of over $800,000 now being distributed to 43 charities across Waterloo Region in response to applications to the COVID-19 Community Response Fund.

This funding is being directed to charitable organizations working with vulnerable populations across Waterloo Region. It will assist organizations that expressed urgent need to continue providing front-line social services through essential programming as well as health and safety for charitable front line workers.
