Atlantic Compassion Fund

COVID-19 inspires business leader to create Atlantic Compassion Fund with a $100,000 match

Homelessness, food insecurity, mental illness and precarious employment are already really difficult things to experience. Now, as public health measures are being made across the region in response to COVID-19, people who are already vulnerable are facing major disruptions and new risks. Many people are in crisis right now.

Now more than ever we need to pull together to support those who need it most. The Atlantic Compassion Fund will do exactly that.

It will help to meet basic needs, reduce the impact of further marginalization and bring people back together when the time is right.


Tom Rose, the President of Atlantic Business Interiors, is partnering with eleven United Ways across Atlantic Canada to create the fund. He is personally going to match dollar-for-dollar the first $100,000 of contributions made by donors across the Atlantic Region.

The Atlantic Compassion Fund will help agencies across Atlantic Canada respond to the unique, immediate and emerging needs in their local community.

United Way is calling on you to take action now and donate.
Remember all money raised in Lunenburg County will stay in Lunenburg County.
