Members with interest in various initiatives or projects that may qualify are requested to forward proposals or suggestions without delay to the Board before end of October.
In addition to work with STC, the foundation have provided two grants to Trinity College Kandy (Winners of the 2012 NYC Sri Lanka Schools Rugby Festival) and Royal College (Runners Up at the 2012 NYC Sri Lanka Schools Rugby Festival). Trinity College will receive Rs. 150,000 towards a suitable project and the Royalists will receive Rs 75,000. In both instances, the money will be di-rected to qualifying projects that are recommended by the OBAs of the two schools.
