Our Charitable Sector Flash Survey Results

May 14, 2020 | Community Reports, Featured, Foundation News/Updates

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Community Foundation for Kingston & Area (CFKA) invited 75 charities in Kingston & Area to participate in a Flash Survey. It was open from April 13 – April 30, 2020. Forty-four completed responses were received– a nearly 60% response rate. Thank you to all our partners that participated!

The goal of the survey was to better understand whether, and how, the current circumstances were impacting their work and to understand what the organizations’ current, medium-term and long-term anticipated needs may be.

The responses were received from organizations representing all the Foundation’s fields of interest (health and social services, youth, arts & culture, community development, recreation, heritage preservation, children’s mental health, environment, education & literacy), and/or address CKFA’s Smart and Caring Priorities, which now include Emergency Response and Recovery.

CFKA intends to be strategic about the best use of our available funds in 2020 to help support local charities to continue to respond to, and recover from, the COVID-19 crisis. Information gleaned from this survey will help to inform the granting strategy for the Foundation for 2020-21. The report contains aggregate data only,  and any comments included have been anonymized.
