Congratulations to the 150 students and organizations who shared $203,164.65 in grants from the Yukon Foundation in 2013.
The Yukon Foundation currently administers almost $7 million in funds. It distributes the interest each year to Yukon students to assist with post-secondary tuition, as well as to qualified organizations supporting projects for Yukoners.
There were over 1,000 applications made to 104 dedicated funds for the Yukon Foundation to consider this year. The funds come from donations, estate bequests, memorials, family endowments, life insurance policies, and former corporations or businesses which have turned over their remaining assets to the foundation.
For further information on how to donate or apply for funds from the Yukon Foundation, please visit www.yukonfoundation.com or call Sophie Partridge at 393-2454. The deadline for applications in 2014 is May 31.
Again, congratulations to all the student and project recipients and their future endeavours.
Karen Hougen-Bell, chair
