Funds were also raised from the sale of an automobile and the 2002 Foundation Gala.

Total cash raised for the foundation so far, including pledges over several years, comes to: $241,250.00

This money will allow the Foundation to accomplish many things in the near future, most important of which is the continued growth of the Children’s Learning Centres and implementation of the Paediatric R.E.A.D. Program. Without all those listed above, and the many others who have contributed to our cause, the Foundation would not exist. It is because of the generous donations of people like this in our community that the Foundation volunteers can continue to ensure literacy awareness is spread throughout the city of Windsor and that generations to come can experience the affects of the wonderful programs that are only just beginning.

For those who have not yet contributed to the Foundation, we are continually in need of financial support. Please see our “Make A Difference Today” section for further information.
