Great Grants - Sauvé Foundation featured by Philanthropic Foundations Canada
This May, the Sauvé Scholars Program was honoured to be featured by the Philanthropic Foundations Canada in their 'Great Grants' series. The article describes how the Sauvé Foundation developed and refined the its Scholars Program, and features just a few of our 114 remarkable alumni.
While the Foundation’s mandate remains consistent with Mme Jeanne Sauvé's vision and values, the way that mandate is realized has changed: biannual weeklong international conferences engaging several hundred youth delegatesfrom around the world in the 1990s were superseded in 2003 by an intensive investment in just 12-14 young leaders through a nine-month residential leadership program. The Program itself ‘stays young’ by adapting to ever-changing social, political and ecological landscapes, as well as by refining its Program to incorporate lessons learned each year.
