World Bicycle Relief

A Worldwide Grant was awarded to support the distribution of 217 bicycles to schools in Namwala. Mobility is critical to alleviating high concentrations of poverty, high drop-out, and illiteracy rates, with students often walking up to six miles to reach the nearest school. – William Magnusson, CLU, CFP, 19-year member


Brae Riding for the Disabled

A Worldwide Grant was awarded to help fund a vaulting program. Brae participants have a variety of disabilities many with common challenges including low confidence, self-esteem, low muscle tone, low levels of communication and patience and very little opportunity to work within a team environment. Participants who are on the autistic spectrum find it difficult to interact with others and read body language. The discipline of vaulting provides the opportunity to overcome these challenges. – Elaine Milne, DipPFS, 10 – year

The FY2021 Foundation grant application process is now open.
