Due to system maintenance on Tuesday 14th July, Foresters Community Grants may be temporarily non-responsive. If you experience difficulties, we kindly ask you to try again later. We apologize for any inconvenience.
NEW UPDATE! Members can now apply for two CTC Grants to help those impacted by the pandemic situation (subject to fund availability). Note that members will only be able to access a second CTC Grant once the first CTC Grant activity has been completed with a submitted Post Activity Report (PAR).
Please note, the Caring Through Crisis Grant is a Community Volunteer Grant to support a local community need during COVID-19 and is not a personal grant.
We hope that our new recently developed programmes such as Caring Through Crisis and Double your Impact have helped you live your purpose while we are managing through these unprecedented times. We will continue to invest in our membership programmes and are excited about upcoming new benefits as well as programme enhancements in 2020.
The main objective for Caring Through Crisis (CTC) Grants are the following:
- Activity must make a meaningful and relevant impact to individuals or communities affected by COVID-19
- Grant is not a straight donation to a charity not-for-profit or individual
- Activity must be contactless and adhere to current social distancing measures and stay-at-home orders as described by the World Health Organization (WHO) and local health authorities and applicable local laws and directives
