Margaret Davies Bursary Fund


Margaret Davies Bursary

The Margaret Davies Bursary Fund was established in 2005 in honour of KHCF founder Margaret Davies.  Prior to the KHCF bursary program’s inception it was rare for youth in transition from care into independent living to continue their education.

Interestingly, the life-enriching programs, like our annual summer camp, provided for youth by the Foundation actually have a indirect affect on the number of students attending post secondary institutions.  All of our ongoing programs are designed to help build self-awareness, self-esteem and self-confidence, the development of which helps children and youth to have and pursue their dreams and to reach their goals in life.

Education is one key to developing life skills and workplace readiness.  With the supports offered by the Foundation today, many more youth transition from their Kawartha-Haliburton Children’s Aid Society support programs to attend post-secondary education or job training programs.

Every year the Foundation provides bursaries to all youth in transition who are pursuing post-secondary education.  Each student receives $2,000.00 per semester through our Margaret Davies Bursary Fund to assist with education related expenses such as tuition and books.  This fund has assisted 170 independent youth with education related expenses since 2002.
