For families who have a child with special needs oftentimes the short term costs related to managing a child’s disability limit their ability to invest in RESP’s or RDSP’s. From time to time, in the face of incredible adversity, kids can do amazing things that demonstrate their full unbridled potential. Their stories inspire us and as they are shared they provide invaluable service as they highlight the abilities of kids with disabilities.
The FD Possibilities grant has been developed to recognize those in our community who have helped raise awareness of children with disabilities and celebrate their stories while at the same time recognizing the financial challenges that the families of these incredible kids face.
The FD Possibilities Grant provides up to $5,000 to be invested in an RESP or RDSP to the successful candidate who:
- Under 18 years of age
- Resides in Durham Region
- Has a disability or a sibling with a disability
- Has done something inspirational to raise awareness of kids with special needs
Nominations can be made by anyone by completing this simple application form and submitting it by December 15, 2015. The successful candidate for the Grant will be announced shortly thereafter.
Please send the completed application electronically to: firstname.lastname@example.org
