It's that time of year! The Thunder Bay Community Foundation is announcing that the 2021 Scholarship and Bursary application period is now closed. With over $100,000 in awards, students can apply online through our scholarship/bursary portal. 

*NEW* We are honoured to welcome our newest scholarship award. MNP has created an accounting scholarship in recognition of their partner, colleague, friend, and philanthropist, Paul Fitzpatrick, FCPA, FCA. MNP is one of the largest full-service chartered accountancy and business advisory firms in Canada. They want to acknowledge a successful career in public accounting that integrates professional success and community support.

*NEW* Mentorship Opportunity for Bursary Applicants

Students who have received our awards have asked for mentors.  A group has been formed of former Thunder Bay Community Foundation Board members, donors, friends and recipients to do this.  Please note on your application if you would like to participate in this program.

Emergency Community Support Fund

The Emergency Community Support Fund (ECSF) is a $350 million emergency funding program from the Government of Canada.

In collaboration with the Canadian Red Cross and United Way Centraide Canada, the Thunder Bay Community Foundation is proud to be involved in the allocation of funding. The fund is designed to help Canada’s most vulnerable populations during the COVID-19 crisis. The global pandemic has left no community untouched, and it is having a disproportionate impact on vulnerable Canadians who are less equipped to deal with its health, social and economic impacts.

ECSF will provide a much-needed boost to organizations on the frontlines, while we also continue our efforts to secure the funding and support required for the stabilization and recovery phases ahead.

The application period for CFC’s ECSF Round #2 funding stream is now closed.



Thank you to our donors and our community for your support.
