One of EQUS’ core values is community, and in living this value, EQUS endeavors to support our members and the rural communities we serve through various programs and initiatives. In a normal year, this support would be in the form of sponsorship for community events, fundraisers, and Operation Round Up support for youth and seniors. So far, 2020 is looking to be a bit different.
The impact of the COVID-19 crisis on non-profit and community groups will likely be felt over the months to come as the need for community-based support increases, while fundraising events that many non-profit groups rely on, have to be cancelled. To help support our rural communities, EQUS will be dedicating sponsorship funds to community organizations working to provide resources and support directly related to COVID-19.
EQUS will be looking to support those who are assisting seniors and vulnerable community members, schools, students and their families, local food banks and other organizations providing services to meet basic needs at a community level, and more. Building strong rural communities is important, and we believe that providing support to local organizations is a key factor in developing resilient communities. EQUS' normal Sponsorship and Donation program will continue to accept applications for programs and initiatives not related to COVID-19 as well.
