COVID-19 Emergency Disbursements

In early 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic took hold of our community, affecting the operations of many charitable organizations we support. With a particular focus on food security and nutrition, Face The World Foundation awarded seven emergency COVID-19 disbursements to support the efforts of those offering additional services during such a difficult time.

Below are the recipients of our emergency disbursements – we are working in partnership with them to feed the hungry, house the homeless, protect the vulnerable and make our community a better place.

The Jacqui Cohen Bursary Fund, in partnership with Face The World Foundation, is designed to give a hand-up to individuals who would like to improve their life-skills or employability and have faced, or are currently facing, barriers to education.
