The LOUD Foundation invests in future leaders of the Canadian LGBTQ community. We believe that by supporting the development of students that possess drive, vision, compassion and knowledge, we can improve society and increase awareness of our diverse community.
When the Foundation first started, we gave away two LOUD Scholarships of $2000 and one Little Sister's Bookstore Scholarship of $1000. In 2017, we awarded $24,000 in 13 scholarships to deserving emerging leaders. So, spread the word and join us!
