Edith H. Turner Foundation Fund

The Edith H. Turner Foundation Fund was established in memory of Edith H. Turner, a lifelong Hamiltonian and only child of Sarah Jane and George A. Turner, a developer in the north east Hamilton. Edith H. Turner died in 1983.

The purpose of the Edith H. Turner Foundation Fund is to assist and provide funds in the fields of education, health, humanities and social development in Hamilton.

Priorities & Criteria

The Edith H. Turner Foundation Fund believes that the children at greatest risk in Canada today are those whose parents lack the earnings, assets, services or social support systems required to consistently meet their families’ needs. The focus of the EHTF funding round for 2015-16 will be to support initiatives designed to help families meet these needs across generations. This may include, but is not limited to, the following types of initiatives:

  • nutrition and stable housing
  • accessing child/youth enrichment activities
  • literacy and educational success
  • job/skills training

The fund does not support:

  • capital campaigns
  • grants to individuals
  • endowment requests or deficit reduction
  • team sponsorships or trips
  • political or religious activities
  • one-time events outside of the broader context of a program
  • conferences
  • research
  • activities outside of Hamilton

Application deadline: September 8, 2017
