The Carole and George Fletcher Foundation provides financial support to exceptional engineering technology and applied science students in Ontario colleges.
Message from Bob Jameson, C.E.T., Fellow OACETT,
chair of the Fletcher Foundation
For more than 30 years, the Fletcher Foundation has successfully funded the education of deserving students enrolled in engineering technology and applied science college programs across Ontario.
As chair of the Foundation, it is my privilege and honour to champion a cause that invests in the future of our profession and makes it possible for worthy students to make a positive impact on the world around us.
Students from across the province benefit from the Foundation’s bursary programs when they receive the OACETT Technology Award, which entitles them to a $1,000 bursary. Under the Foundation’s Enhanced Student Educational Experience (ESEE) Program, eligible Ontario colleges receive funds for programs that promote entrepreneurism, new technologies, women or aboriginal youth and other significant efforts that encourage inclusion, diverse thinking and innovation for tomorrow. Both programs have been fundamental in helping engineering technology and applied science students in achieving their academic goals.
We continue to raise funds that support the Foundation’s bursary and ESEE programs through the Matching Donation Program. However, these days, fundraising has been more challenging, with the COVID-19 pandemic affecting our communities, jobs and livelihood. Unfortunately, students have been one of the groups impacted the most financially by the crisis, which means they need us more than ever. I invite you to support them and invest in their future.
Thank you for your ongoing commitment to the Fletcher Foundation. Your donations promote our tradition of excellence, and for this, we are forever grateful.
From all of us on the Fletcher Foundation board, thank you.
