Donate to Education and Cultural Foundation
The Latvian National Federation in Canada Educational and Cultural Foundation invites you to join in this year’s annual fundraising drive so that the foundation can continue supporting Latvian educational and cultural activities here in Canada.
Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, the Educational and Cultural Foundation (ECF) board members continue to meet virtually to review new requests for funding. This past year we provided financial support to individual students, Canadian Latvian schools and helped fund two books and the 3x3 family educational camp. Over the last ten years we have distributed $661,865 to support Latvian schools, seminars, scholarships for university students and summer educational programs, concerts, research, Canadian Latvian Song Festivals, CDs and various other cultural projects and events. Without your donations, this support would not have been possible. A new video showcasing some of our grant recipients will help highlight the impact of your generosity through word, song, dance and music. The video will be available February 11th at 1:00 pm and 8:00 pm on Zoom #210 505 8856. It will also be announced on our web site (www.lnak.net/en/education-fund/) and LNAK facebook page.
Many thanks to the generous donors who have supported ECF’s important work in the past and please remember the good works of our benefactors can continue long after they themselves are no longer with us by a testamentary donation to the LNFC Educational and Cultural Foundation. Your donations ensure that we will be able to continue supporting our Latvian schools and students. They are the next generation of Canadian Latvians who will carry on our Latvian culture here in Canada.
You may donate by either going to our web site www.lnak.net/en/education-fund/ or fill out the form below and send it together with your cheque to the LNFC office. All donations will receive a charitable donation receipt.
