June 11, 2021
The Connor, Clark & Lunn Foundation (CC&L Foundation) is pleased to announce it has donated $25,000 to the Canadian Red Cross in support of India’s COVID-19 relief efforts. Funds will be directed from the Canadian Red Cross to the Indian Red Cross. The recent surge of COVID-19 cases in India caused a shortage of supplies and a strain on the health care system. Funds directed to the Indian Red Cross support COVID-19 response and recovery activities in India, as well as preparedness and resiliency activities for future pandemic and/or emergency events. Many employees at Connor, Clark & Lunn Financial Group and its affiliates call India home and have family and friends located in the hot spot areas. As the pandemic continues to create various uncertainties during these challenging times, we must continue to support those affected by COVID-19.
