Canary is a mission-driven enterprise contributing to the evolution of the 21st century social safety net to ensure that in times of financial need, individuals can access emergency funds with dignity.
We do our work in three ways:
Our proprietary emergency relief fund platform - Grant Circle - facilitates the provision of timely, small-dollar financial assistance in moments of need;
Our consulting services help organizations improve the impact and efficiency of established emergency relief funds;
Our research and strategic partnerships advance the field.
"Establishing an emergency relief fund in a very short timeframe in the middle of COVID is a testament to the strong foundation Canary had built prior to work with Arosa and the hard work of an incredibly talented team. I’m really pleased with Arosa Grant Circle's impact, the communication between the teams, and the alignment of our companies’ missions. I look forward to a long, meaningful partnership."
– ARI MEDOFF, CEO, AROSA
Our work with Canary has driven significant advancements in how we think about the impact, processes and grantmaking practices of our established employee assistance fund. We are constantly impressed by their thoughtfulness, professionalism, and deep understanding of the outcomes we are collectively hoping to drive.
