FOUNDATION

About the LOUD Foundation

The LOUD Foundation invests in future leaders of the Canadian LGBTQ+ community. We believe that by supporting the development of students who possess drive, vision, compassion and knowledge, we can improve society and increase awareness of our diverse community.

The GLBA Foundation, fondly known as The LOUD Foundation is a registered Charity: 805192549RR0001

Following our charitable Foundation being formed in 2007, we granted two LOUD Scholarships of $2,000 and one Little Sister's Bookstore Scholarship of $1,000.

In 2019, we awarded 19 $2000 scholarships to deserving emerging leaders and this year we are proud to announce that for 2020 we have awarded a total of 20 scholarships!

Applications open in November, close January 31st annually. MORE ON SCHOLARSHIPS
