Verna J. Kirkness Education Foundation 

VJKF Student Experiment

All donations will receive a tax receipt. All donations received are used to fund the Verna J. Kirkness Education Foundation Program. The Foundation relies on many volunteers to deliver the Program for FNMI High School students. We have a volunteer Board of Directors and work to keep our administrative costs as low as possible. The Foundation does not utilize third party fundraising organizations.

Your Donation

Your donation to the Verna Kirkness Education Foundation allows us to continue to deliver quality programs to our students. A unique aspect of the Kirkness Program is that we do not ask for the student’s grades. 

Selection is based on the student’s essay which is their opportunity to talk about what they would like to do after completing grade 12 and how the Kirkness Program would help them make a choice regarding post secondary studies.

Our Registered Charity Number is: 82284 3629 RR 0001.
