Pieridae Waterton COVID-19 Relief Fund

The effects of the COVID-19  pandemic continues to raise important questions and uncertainty within our society. During this difficult time, we need to support the community as best we can to keep people safe and healthy, therefore, Pieridae Waterton has created a relief fund for the community. This relief fund focuses on organizations and  disaster preparedness, response and rehabilitation. Pieridae will coordinate with the MD of Pincher Creek to ensure that not-for-profit organizations that have been stressed by the crisis have the resources they need to meet the community needs. All social investment applications will be going through a screening process and prioritization will be given to those organizations who impact community health and safety during this time. Attached is the application, and they can be sent to the email provided in the document. Applications will be reviewed daily during this time to accommodate funding for these organizations. Please contact Kali Larson (403.627.7282) if you have any questions.
