Bursary Program

Foothills Academy Society’s philosophy is that no individual with Learning Disabilities be left behind irrespective of their family’s financial circumstances.  Within our school program, approximately half of our families receive some bursary financial support. Additionally, financial assistance is available to families accessing our Community Services programs and services. As a result, close to $1 Million is needed each year to support the Bursary Program. This is why we reach out to corporations, individuals, foundations and service clubs for support.  The school parents, students and staff also work together each year to fundraise in different areas.

We invite corporations, individuals, foundations and service clubs to donate.  The money raised goes directly to our Bursary Program unless otherwise noted by the donor.  If the donor chooses, monies can also be directed specifically to our Camp Amicus program, put towards capital purchases or sustainable funding. If you or your organization would like to be part of this, you can donate online, call  403-270-9400 or complete our contact form, ATTN:  Loretta Geernaert.

We welcome all donations large and small. You’ll never know what a difference it can make in a child’s or a family’s life.

Thank you for your support!
