Youth Philanthropy

Abbotsford Community Foundation has partnered with YPI Canada  for the second year to provide a matching grant of $2500 that will allow W.J. Mouat Secondary School to participate  in their 2017/18 program.  This will allow all 320 students in Grade 10 to be involved in an extraordinary experience that builds skill and character, while learning about social issues, local charities and philanthropy.

Throughout the school year, students will research, visit and invite a presentation from local charities in Abbotsford.  Late in the spring of 2018,  $5000 will be awarded to one charity after all the components of the program are completed and the finalists have had one last chance to pitch their charity.
