As a nonprofit charity, LDS is dedicated to providing equitable, affordable access to learning support for all students. Thanks to the ongoing generous support of our donors, grantors, and sponsors, we are able to connect qualifying families with external bursaries (see below) as well as provide an internal bursary fund to help subsidize the cost of our programming to families in need.
