COVID Catch-up Fund

We have been transforming lives for the past 50 years through our dedication to excellence in all aspects of our work and commitment to innovate and respond to the needs of our community. 

Across BC, kids with learning differences have been disproportionately impacted by the pandemic. Our COVID Catch-up Fund helps level the playing field.

From May 17th to 28th, your gift of $5 will be matched by a $50 donation!
