MAY COURT SCHOLARSHIP DONOR PROGRAM

The pandemic has made fundraising more challenging. While we have become more creative in our efforts to fundraise in non-traditional methods, the challenges remain. The most difficult part of this program is not being able to help everyone. To help address some of our fundraising challenges, we are expanding our Scholarship Donor Program. Over the years, our past recipients have come back to us to share their incredible journeys of success & offer to pay it forward in any way they can. Their stories inspire us to keep doing the work. We believe they will inspire you too. If you are interested in becoming a donor or wish to learn more about our program, please email us at scholarships@maycourt.ca

We want to thank the following donors for their continued support:

The Goddard Group Foundation – Supporter Since 2008

Walton Family Foundation – Supporter Since 2012
