New Fund to ‘Be There’ for Kids

Celebrating its 30th year, the Foundation for Education has developed a new strategic plan and will be adding a crucial mission on top of their learning enrichment work.

“After much research and reflection, and with the assistance of education foundations around the Province, we are building the framework for a district-wide fund”, states Wes MacVicar, the Foundation for Education’s Executive Director.

“Whether students lack basic necessities, face difficult challenges at home or find themselves in emergency situations- we will soon be able to be there with a quick and compassionate response.”

The fund is called the Caring Fund and this year is their building year with funds scheduled to be available for students beginning in 2020-2021.

What they are looking for now is financial support from the community to help spark the new fund to life and to lay the groundwork for assisting students in crisis.

Together, we look forward to providing kids with the opportunity to focus on learning … not on the barriers they are facing.
