The Limestone Learning Foundation, in partnership with the Limestone District School Board, is dedicated to ensuring that every student is successful and supported in their well-being and education.

We hope that you are staying safe and healthy as we adjust to the COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on our lives.

We value the patience you have afforded us as we pivot from our typical activities to support students and school communities during these challenging times.

We continue to work closely with the school board, community partners and agencies to see how the Foundation may be able to serve our larger community, especially those who are particularly vulnerable. We cannot do this without our dedicated volunteers and donors.

We want to assure you that although we will be suspending grants and events until we are safely through this public health emergency, we remain ready to provide more of the successful projects that have carried the Foundation beyond its 20 years.

Unfortunately, the Sandra Davison Memorial Golf Classic scheduled for June 4, 2020 has been postponed due to public health risks associated with COVID - 19. This decision was reached after consultation with Loyalist Golf and Country Club, organizers, and local partners. It is a disappointing turn of events as staff had been diligently working on making this year's tournament another great event, but it is a decision that is necessary.

These are unprecedented times and we want to thank the Limestone District School Board, and Director of Education Debra Rantz, for their commitment to student learning and well-being.

Our staff continue to work remotely and always happy to help. Be kind to yourself as we move forward.

Stay well.
