Proudly supporting The Frontline Fund

The Frontline Fund was created as a way for Canadians and Canadian corporations to help arm healthcare workers and hospital foundations across Canada, with the supplies, supports, and research funding they need to fight COVID-19.

The funds raised go towards supporting three main areas: 

  • Supplies – personal protective equipment like masks, disinfectants, and disposable clothing; ventilators, diagnostic and testing equipment, digital infrastructure needed to enable virtual patient care;

  • Supports – Peer-to-peer mental health support, counselling, accommodation and food for healthcare workers that need to self-isolate, recognition and appreciation initiatives;

  • Research – Support for clinical and basic research, COVID-19 clinical trials, and vaccine development.

How to support

Masks available by donation

Masks are a must-have for travel, in accordance with Transport Canada guidelines. Travellers can bring their own face-covering or pick up a disposable mask at Airport Check-in for a minimum suggestion donation of $2. All proceeds of mask sales will go directly to The Frontline Fund.

Giving back on essential travel

Swoop will be donating $5 for each new traveller booked during the month of June to the Frontline Fund.

  • The masks will be available at Airport Check-in for a suggested minimum donation of $2 CAD per mask, with 100 per cent of after-tax proceeds going to The Frontline Fund. Payment must be made by credit or debit only as we are unable to accept cash donations at this time.

  • Tax receipts will not be provided.
