Organization Mission & Mandate
The Mission Of The Foundation:
"Building a Strong Foundation for Learning...Developing Community Resources for Students"
The UGLF supports students by raising and distributing funds in three key financial pillars as a registered charity:
By using our General fund, including our Freedom to Achieve resources, to help students participate fully in school life by providing them with items or experiences for learning that cannot otherwise be funded by their family or school;
By holding in trust school funds on an in and out basis forfundraising initiatives for projects including playground construction and greening of school yards;
By holding in trust funds associated with scholarships.
The Objective Of The Foundation:
The objectives of the Foundation, as stated in the application for incorporation, are as follows:
(a) to receive and maintain a fund or funds and to apply all or part of the principal and income therefrom, from time to time, for the charitable purposes of advancing the cause of education in the counties of Wellington and Dufferin;
(b) to receive and maintain a fund or funds and to apply all or part thereof and the income thereof for charitable purposes of an educational nature, and in particular to provide equipment, furnishings, teaching aids and supplies to educational institutions primarily in the counties of Wellington and Dufferin
In more simple terms, the mandate of the Foundation is to provide support for any project or activity which has an educational or learning purpose, and to link community resources with students in need.
We invite you to read our web details and to work with us to create additional learning opportunities that enhance the quality of life in our school communities.
The provincial government provides annual funding to School Boards to operate basic programming. However, many unique and valuable educational opportunities are not available to our students that need special funding. Many projects that benefit our schools could not be completed without contributions from our communities and generous donors like yourself.
We believe that by supporting our school communities and the students within them of the Upper Grand District School Board through the Upper Grand Learning Foundation, you will will enhance the educational experience of our children.
We thank you for your support of the Upper Grand Learning Foundation.
To ensure 100% of UGDSB students have access to a deep and varied educational experience regardless of personal need or circumstance.
We are kind through our compassionate financial support of UGDSB students.
We act with integrity by being honest, transparent and through an uncompromising commitment to equity of experience for all students in the UGDSB.
