GSJ Community Foundation to take part in national Fund for Gender Equality
GSJ Community Foundation is proud to be one of participating community foundations across Canada taking part in the Fund for Gender Equality in Canada, a new collaboration between Community Foundations of Canada and the Equality Fund which is supported by the Government of Canada. Through this Fund, in 2021 and 2022, we will deliver $255,000.00 in funding locally to support organizations at the heart of the women’s movement, whose core activities, leadership, mission, and vision are committed to advancing gender equality.
We believe that a just recovery is a feminist recovery. To create communities of true belonging, we need to advance gender equality across the country. By participating in the Fund for Gender Equality, we and other participating foundations are also committing to a number of other actions, including an examination of our own organizational and investment practices for women. By catalyzing the community foundation movement and the thousands of Canadians we connect with each day, we believe we can do more than just foster gender equality. We have an opportunity to begin removing the long-standing barriers to it.
The Fund for Gender Equality is supported by a collaboration between Community Foundations of Canada and the Equality Fund, with support from the Government of Canada.
