The Canadian Battlefields Foundation needs your help – one more time. Help us finish the job of keeping alive the sacrifices made by young Canadians in the Second World War through a bursary program, to provide future generations of Canadians, the teachers and leaders of tomorrow, with the knowledge and experience to continue the work we started.
NORMANDY BURSARY FUND-RAISING CAMPAIGN
Students’ field trips are funded primarily from income generated by the Foundation’s Bursary Fund. Participating students are each expected to pay a part of the cost of the tour.
Donations and pledges to the Fund reached $750 000 by May 2001. It is essential that the Foundation increase the Fund to $1 000 000 if it is to continue supporting twelve students each year in perpetuity. When the Fund reaches $1 000 000 it will be self-sufficient
The number of student applications each year is a good sign that young Canadians are becoming ever more conscious of this important part of their heritage.
The Foundation expends all but a small fraction of donations received on the Memorial Garden and the bursary fund.
