As chair of the Foundation, it is my privilege and honour to champion a cause that invests in the future of our profession and makes it possible for worthy students to make a positive impact on the world around us.
Students from across the province benefit from the Foundation’s bursary programs when they receive the OACETT Technology Award, which entitles them to a $1,000 bursary. Under the Foundation’s Enhanced Educational Experience (EEE) grant, eligible Ontario colleges receive funds for programs that promote entrepreneurism, new technologies, women or Aboriginal People and other significant efforts that encourage inclusion, diverse thinking and innovation for tomorrow.
We continue to raise funds that support the Foundation’s bursary and EEE programs through the Matching Donation Program. These days, fundraising has been more challenging, and students have been one of the groups impacted the most financially, which means they need us more than ever. I invite you to support and invest in their future.
Thank you for your ongoing commitment to the Fletcher Foundation. Your donations promote our tradition of excellence, and for this, we are forever grateful.
From all of us on the Fletcher Foundation board, thank you.
