Your gift will provide financial assistance to community-based adult learning programs. Programs can use the funds to support their students with short-term needs such as transport, childcare, books or other costs that would make the difference between attending and not attending their literacy program. The purpose of the Access Fund is to help remove barriers by providing financial resources with few strings attached in order to fill gaps that more formal funding channels do not meet.
Awards of up to $1,000 will be granted to community-based adult learning programs in BC that demonstrate a need for assistance related to student access where other financial support is not available. Priority will be given to programs that demonstrate the greatest need.
Eligible applicants must be (or be in partnership with) a registered non-profit corporation/society/host agency, school board, or public college in British Columbia.
