From not having access to recreational and leisure activities due to cancellations, to being laid off from a job, to facing greater social isolation and stress, COVID-19 has hit the people supported by Empower Simcoe particularly hard.
Your gift today has the power to make a difference in the life of an individual or family dealing with challenges in life that the pandemic has only made worse. Whether contributing to our Respite fund to give caregivers a break, supporting the cost of a new wheelchair through our Mobility fund, paying for PPE through a gift to our COVID-19 Prevention fund, or making a general donation to “wherever the need is greatest,” your gift shows that you care and helps make life more meaningful and inclusive for the people we support.
The Empower Simcoe Foundation, established in 1998, partners directly with Empower Simcoe in supporting people of all abilities across Simcoe County. Funds raised by the Foundation go directly to individuals and families for services and supports that receive limited or no government funding. The Foundation also raises funds in support of efforts to foster a more inclusive society and ensure everyone has the opportunity to live a meaningful life.
If you want to make the biggest difference, sign up as a monthly donor and join the Community Champions Club to keep the impact of your generosity going all year long.
Be a hero! Donate today so you can give more people in your community the chance to Be, Belong, and Thrive.
Please note: online payments to the Empower Simcoe Foundation are made through PayPal. You do not need to have an account to use PayPal. If you prefer to make your donation another way, please contact us.
