As a strong supporter of inspiring initiatives in the field of medicine, the R. Howard Webster Foundation would like to offer its gratitude to the workers on the front line who are helping to keep our communities safe and healthy during this period of heightened risk and uncertainty.  By virtue of provincial legislation, in order to reduce the mounting consequences to health, community, and economy from this global pandemic, the Foundation is heeding public health agency and government guidelines and has closed the office until further notice.

The Foundation continues to accept online proposals.  Those who wish to apply for emergency funding resulting from the COVID-19 crisis may do so via our online application process no later than July 31, 2020, keeping in mind that as the situation changes it may impede the Foundation’s activities and operations.  The Foundation, therefore, cannot guarantee the outcome or the processing time.  While we realize that this may be upsetting, we need to put the health of society first.

We hope that you remain safe and that you follow the government’s rules and regulations aimed at flattening the curve and slowing the spread of COVID-19.
