THE AYALIK FUND 2021 - 2022
The Ayalik fund was established in 2015, and since then it has sent over 100 Northern youth on challenging outdoor adventures.  Opportunities like this give youth a chance to grow and achieve their full potential. Several clubs within D7080 have come together with the objective of raising enough money to sponsor at least two youths on an upcoming adventure.  With the help of the District’s Indigenous Resource Committee, they are approaching clubs within D7080 in search of donations. The total cost to sponsor one youth is roughly $7500; two youth would require $15,000.  A donation of $500 across 30 clubs in the district would meet the fundraising objective. We encourage you to watch this video from the Ayalik Fund, and then email Burlington North Rotarian Craig Macpherson to arrange a presentation about the program for your club.
