About This Charity
About Our Charity
The Bill 7 Award Trust provides scholarships for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transsexual, transgender, two-spirited and queer students who are Ontario residents, in financial need and are enrolled in their first program at any Ontario post-secondary institution. It is named after the 1986 Ontario legislation that extended the protection of the Human Rights Code based upon sexual orientation. Bill 7 Award is directed and administered by a Board of Trustees made up of representatives from two community groups: Community One and Supporting Our Youth (a program of Sherbourne Health Centre). By building a capital trust fund, Bill 7 Award is able to leverage contributions that are made to provide scholarships for many years to come.
In recent years, Bill 7 Award has been able to grant 8-10 awards of $2,000 each to very deserving LGBTQ students.
Donations may be designated to be invested in the capital fund, disbursed in the following year, or this decision can be left to the discretion of the trustees.
