OTIP Community Fund gives back to three education programs

Each quarter, the OTIP Community Fund receives dozens of applications requesting funding a variety of programs supporting youth. All submissions are reviewed by a group of Executives and those that match best with our own company values are granted funds to help make the program a reality.

Let’s take a look at the three programs OTIP supported in Q2.

Young Singers
Young Singers is a dynamic community choral program offered to youth since 1992 in the Durham Region. The program supports musically inclined youth in the community by providing them with music education and a range of life-enhancing performance experiences, including travel and cultural exchange, and outreach opportunities in the community. OTIPs donation helped develop the music library and participate in artistic collaborations with other Canadian musicians.

Life Lessonz
Life Lessonz is a non-profit camp that serves young adults with special needs that face physical, emotional or intellectual barriers.  The camp gives back to the community through clean ups where youth will recycle items found on the ground and build bird feeders for public spaces. The funds from OTIP will provide transportation for these outings, allowing youth to connect with their community. 

The Canadian Canoe Museum
The Canadian Canoe Museum is a unique national heritage centre that explores the history of canoes, kayaks and paddled watercraft from across Canada. With over 600 canoes, kayaks and paddled watercraft in the museum, visitors can learn many major watercraft traditions in Canada. The funds that OTIP donated to the Museum will help develop education programs for Indigenous and non-Indigenous students. 

If you know a charitable organization that is in need of funding, please direct them to the OTIP Community Fund to learn more and apply.
