The CASARA Foundation

About the Foundation


The CASARA Foundation was first established in May 2004 (first bursary given out 15 May 04) and has awarded 35+ bursaries to individuals across Canada, exceeding $35,000.00+ to date.

Our bursaries hold preference to CASARA Members and their family with the maximum awarded of $5,000, and the average of $1,000 per bursary per recipient. The CASARA Foundation also gives out $1,000 to the Air Cadet League of Canada for a deserving Cadet to further his/her Pilot Training each year, based on The Air Cadet League's selection across Canada. The bursary funds are not provided directly to the recipient but sent to their school of choice. Any recipient needs to provide a proof of enrolment along with their student number and funding is sent to that school to be credited against their student account.

The managing members of the Foundation are CASARA's Past Presidents who run it on a day-to-day basis. The Board of Directors (BOD) all hold one vote each for the future of our bursary recipients and are usually decided upon at the end of the Spring, during our National AGM Board of Directors meetings.
