Leacross Foundation Continues to Give

The Leacross Foundation continues its support of iSisters with a $30,000 grant. We are honoured to thank and recognize Ms. Roslyn Bern and the Foundation for their generous gift.

Leacross Foundation has been supporting iSisters for nearly a decade. Our work would not be possible without their continued and generous contributions. 

Made up of a group of determined individuals who want to see women and children having opportunities in life, the Foundation’s mission is to educate women and children in society. They try to focus on opportunities for training at accredited institutions in the STEM fields to promote healthy economic independence and also provide opportunities for creative and artistic endeavours.

Leacross Foundation believes that each individual can succeed, if only, with a little help along the way. Their hope is that women and girls can participate in whatever career they choose without discrimination or bias.
