|Joseph E. Atkinson.|
In the categories of health, social welfare, economic justice and education the Foundation has given more than $55 million since its inception.
The Foundation has three priorities in 2009
Early Childhood Education and Development: Innovative projects that demonstrate how to improve the futures of children and youth at risk through more effective early years programming and policies.
Economic Justice: Innovative projects—including community organizing, research and educational activities—geared to increasing community and policy capacity to reduce poverty.
The Canadian Index of Wellbeing: A new approach to measuring how Canadians' lives are getting better – or worse – in areas that matter: health, standard of living, quality of the environment, time use, education and skills, community vitality, civic engagement, and arts and culture.
