During this unprecedented time, we believe it’s even more important to stay safely engaged with our communities. Responding with community support during crisis situations has always been a rich part of the Foresters history and this time is no different.

To support members who want to give back in their communities, we have created a temporary community grant called Caring Through Crisis that will help support safe, contact-free volunteer efforts in local communities. The Caring Through Crisis Grant will be available until the end of June 2020 throughout Canada, the U.S. and the U.K.

Whether delivering coffee to frontline workers, building boredom-buster kits for kids in need or supporting a local food drive, we are dedicated to helping make a difference in the communities where our members live, work, play and raise families.

I’m inspired! Where do I start?

Every community’s needs are different. Here are some ideas to start off with, but there are many other unique ways to help your community.
