Calling all community-minded postal employees and retirees: Grant applications for funding from the Canada Post Community Foundation are coming in fast and furious. Applications from charities, school programs and community organizations for funding of projects providing support for initiatives that benefit children have been received from across the country. We’re looking for volunteers to give a few hours of their time to help evaluate the proposals.
If you’re interested in helping out, contact Claude Bruneau at firstname.lastname@example.org. Claude will pass your names on to Cindy Daoust (see letter below), who will organize a conference call with all parties in mid-April to explain the process. Bonus: you can do it all from home – there’ll be no travel and parking involved!!
Letter from Canada Post’s Community Foundation team
The Foundation has $1.35 million to grant, thanks to our customers and to your support . If you’d like to be part of the process in deciding how grants are distributed, now’s your chance! You can volunteer as little – or a much – time as you wish. If you’re new to the process, no worries, it’s a straightforward process and we’ll guide you through it. We have applications in both English and French. It’s an online review process, so you need access to a computer (does NOT need to be a Canada Post computer), internet access and email. You review the files online (though you could print them if you wanted) and then email us your scores.
Many thanks to those of you who helped out last year. We’re reaching out to you again now because you would be great at this, and it’s a very rewarding way to spend a few hours. Last year, a group of about 50 helped us get through over 1200 applications. We’re hoping to add even more volunteers this year…
If you’d like to help out, please contact Claude Bruneau at email@example.com.
