New online charity auction coming in July

Change the world…get some cool stuff

We’re launching a new online charity auction in July – the Futures Auction – and we need your help. 

The auction will be supporting our bursary program called the Futures Fund which sends youth in our care to college and university every year. Last year, we spent the most we’ve ever spent in 100 years on bursaries – $57,000 to help 21 youth. These are young people who have grown up in our foster care system. Many of them have no real family. They need our support to get an education. And a good education is exactly what they need. It can literally change their world. 

In the past, we’ve raised much of the money we need from our annual charity golf tournament called Swing For Success. This year, we’re giving Swing For Success a rest and concentrating on the Futures Auction. 

We’re hoping to create some cool experiences and great prizes for the auction. Everything will be online – the prizes, bidding and more. 

You can help make it success:
• Find some prizes we can use
• Find a sponsor
• Make a donation to our bursary fund

The youth we serve are counting on us to help them go to college and university. Can we count on you?

We’ll be telling you more about the Futures Auction soon. Watch for it.
