The Bell Let’s Talk Community Fund is now open for 2021 applications by January 28 Let’s Talk Day.
The Community Fund is a $ 2 million annual program that provides money to registered charities working locally to improve access to mental health care in communities across Canada. Charities can apply for a grant of up to $ 25,000 to support local mental health programs by visiting Bell’s Let’s Talk website.
Underlining our commitment to enable mental health action everywhere, the Bell Let’s Talk Community Fund has supported nearly 800 grassroots and local organizations in all provinces and territories since its launch in 2011. As the demand for help has increased due to COVID-19, Community-level mental health action is now more important than ever, ”said Mary Deacon, president of Bell Let’s Talk.
Bell says a committee of Canadian mental health experts reviews every application the company receives. The 2021 application period runs through March 15, and all 2021 grants will be disbursed by December 31, 2021.
Bell Let’s Talk Day will be held on January 28th. On that day, Bell will donate 5 cents to Canadian mental health programs for every TikTok text message, local or long distance call, tweet or video shared using the hashtag ‘#BellLetsTalk’. You will also donate for each Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, Snapchat, TikTok, Twitter and YouTube view of the Bell Let’s Talk Day video, as well as for each use of the Bell Let’s Talk Facebook frame or Snapchat filter.
