The 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 youth and adults to build independence or improve quality of life, yet certain financial circumstances may restrict individuals from accessing these experiences or equipment. The Directors Award may be used to purchase items that support achieving goals in the areas of post-secondary education, employment or independent living. Examples of items that have been previously funded are vehicle repairs, first aid instructor course, rental housing deposit, household items, therapy, and clothing for work.
There are two application cycles for 2022. The next application deadline is March 31, 2022 and successful applicants will be notified via email before April 15, 2022.
Recipients may receive the Directors Award more than once to a maximum cumulative value of $1000.
