Scotford Community Covid Relief Fund
We recognize that our local communities have met many challenges in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic. As Alberta begins our relaunch strategy, we want to ensure that health and safety remain a top priority and that our local non-profits can resume business while meeting provincial health and safety restrictions.
This new program designed to respond to the needs of our community during these unprecedented times will provide a total of $30,000 to non-profit organizations in northern Strathcona County, Fort Saskatchewan, Sherwood Park, Bruderheim and Lamont for one-time, non-profit facility upgrades and one-time, health-and-safety-supply orders.
Who is eligible?
Non-profit organizations in northern Strathcona County, Fort Saskatchewan, Sherwood Park, Bruderheim, and Lamont can apply.
Please note that some organizations are not eligible for a grant. These include: individuals or individual pursuits, for-profit businesses, sports tournaments, homeowners’ associations, fraternal or labour organizations, political organizations, religious organizations for the sole benefit of the organization.
What types of projects are eligible?
Non-profit facility upgrades and one-time health and safety supply orders. (Ex. Sneeze guard installation, face masks, gloves, hand sanitizer, etc).
Funding cannot be used for operating expenses, dues or memberships, trips, tours, travel expenses, conferences, advertising, giveaways or prizes, third-party fundraising events, individual scholarships, lobbying expenses or personal computers.
How much is each grant?
Each grant will be up to a maximum of $5,000. The actual amount will depend on the number of applications and each individual grant request. Grant applications requesting more than the $5,000 maximum amount will only be considered for the maximum.
When is the deadline?
*Applications will be evaluated on a first-come, first-served basis.
The program will close when the total $30,000 has been donated. To ensure your organization is considered, please apply as early as possible.

How are grant recipients determined?
A review committee of Shell staff with input from family and community support representatives will select which grant applications will be funded through the program.
