Directors Award

The Sinneave Family Foundation (Sinneave) is dedicated to improving the transition to adulthood for individuals with autism. The annual Directors Award honours the service of both current and previous members of Sinneave’s Board of Directors. The award acknowledges that specific experiences or equipment can support emerging adults to build independence or improve quality of life, yet certain financial circumstances may restrict individuals from accessing these experiences or equipment.

NOTE: The Directors Award may be used for a broad range of items (including iPads or other communication devices).

For 2019, Sinneave will be awarding up to a total of $10,000 (individual amounts will depend on applications received) to individuals who apply and meet the eligibility criteria.

Directors Award applications will be accepted until midnight Mountain Time on Sunday, June 2, 2019. Successful recipients will be notified by email.

The Directors Award recipient must be 15 years of age or older, have an autism diagnosis and be a resident of Alberta. Please review the Directors Award Policies prior to applying as the recipient or parent/legal guardian must sign a release of liability and waiver before the Directors Award can be issued.
