Backgrounder - Lebanon Matching Fund


The Government of Canada has launched the Lebanon Matching Fund. It will amplify the support of Canadians and reinforce the response of Canada’s Humanitarian Coalition and its members as they address the humanitarian needs stemming from the devastating explosion in the port of Beirut, Lebanon, on August 4, 2020.

For every dollar individuals donate between August 4 and 24, 2020, to the Humanitarian Coalition and its members to respond to the crisis, the Government of Canada will provide a dollar to the Humanitarian Coalition, up to a maximum of $2 million.

Global Affairs Canada will transfer the matching funds to the Humanitarian Coalition, which will in turn allocate the funds among its members based on criteria such as their capacity and presence in the affected region.
