2021 Charitable Giving
For our 2021 charitable giving, Algonquin partnered with the Children’s Aid Foundation of Canada to offer 10 post-secondary scholarships and 10 bursaries to young adults transitioning out of foster care.
Every year in Canada, approximately 2300 young people ‘age out’ of the child welfare system and are suddenly confronted with navigating life on their own.
Given the costs and lack of family support, the financial burdens posed by higher education can prevent these youth from earning a degree or diploma.
We hope that through these scholarships and bursaries that we can help 20 young adults break the cycles of abuse, neglect, and poverty for themselves and future generations.
