Scholarship/Bursary Program

Although the Reston & Area Foundation was granted charity status in 2004, only interest from the fund could be expended.
It was not until 2006 that the Board could begin dispensing funds.
 
The first program was for scholarships or bursaries to deserving high school graduates.
 
The Winnipeg Foundation and Manitoba Hydro offered matching contributions and in 4 years $9,850 was received to supplement our $20,000 deposited in the fund.
 
From the interest, we have awarded a total of $15,900.00. The awarded amounts were:
 
2006        $2,000.00


2007 $1,900.00


2008 $2,000.00


2009 $1,750.00


2010 $2,250.00


2011 $2,100.00


2012 $2,100.00


2013            $1,800.00

Community Grants Program

The first year that interest had accumulated sufficiently to begin taking applications for grants for community projects was 2007. By then the Board had developed policies to guide the processing of applications. Since that time nearly $106,000 has been invested in our communities.
