Welcome to The Scottish Clans of Canada Education Fund
Thank you for stopping by the www.scocef.ca website. It is the home of "The Scottish Clans of Canada Education Fund" and here you will find information pertaining to the fund.
What is the The Scottish Clans of Canada Education Fund?
This organization originated as an offshoot of Clan Donald Canada and was originally called the Clan Donald Canada Foundation. Shortly after its inception, the Directors decided that the scope of the organization should be broadened to include any Scottish Clans, organizations and individuals who are interested in preserving Scottish Culture in Canada. The name was changed to the Scottish Clans of Canada Education Fund to reflect this broader scope and membership is open to any of the above mentioned groups who share this interest.
The fund was established to receive donations from interested groups and individuals. These donations are used to provide bursaries and financial assistance to students who are studying or wish to study any form of Scottish Culture, such as Celtic music, dance, Gaelic language, history, Scottish genealogy, at an accredited Canadian University or other educational institution. Where possible, the fund could also provide instructional classes as described above. It is overseen by a Board of Directors who meet several times a year, twice in person and twice electronically. There are working committees made up of Board members. These committees are Bursary, Finance, Membership, Promotion, and Website.
The establishment of the SCOCEF gives interested people an opportunity to contribute to the advancement of Scottish Culture. As a registered charity, income tax receipts are provided for all donations of $10. and over.
Membership in the SCOCEF is open to any interested groups and individuals and can be accessed by using the membership form found below. There is no membership fee. Donations can be made through the Treasurer or through the Canada Helps contact found on this page. The Board of Directors and President Brundage MacDonald extend a warm welcome to any prospective members and donors.
