About the Stephen Leacock Foundation for Children
Understanding the needs of others is crucial in a civilized society. And “disadvantage” has many faces: children in the developing world need bricks and mortar, textbooks and computers; inner-city children need reasons to believe they can succeed and opportunities to prove it; children in private schools need to see beyond the borders of privilege. The Stephen Leacock Foundation for Children is dedicated to helping disadvantaged youth. We believe that young people without hope pose a risk, not only to themselves, but also to the larger community. Our mission is to help them believe in themselves and their future. .
