The ManCap Foundation is a non-profit, federally registered charity founded in 1996 by the ManCap Group of companies. The foundation has raised over $1,000,000 to foster entrepreneurship and leadership in Alberta's youth.
The Foundation has built an endowment at the Edmonton Community Foundation worth $500,000 that today awards six scholarships worth $4,500 each to Alberta high school students entering their first year of post-secondary studies. High marks are not a requirement and financial need is a criterion. Since 1997 we have awarded 97 grants worth $217,500, and because our endowment is fully funded and growing, we will continue to award $27,000 in scholarships each year in perpetuity.
The foundation also supports success experience programs in our community like Junior Achievement, Scouts Canada, YMCA Sky High Program, Youth in Transition and the Day Home Provider Program at Norquest College, as well as programs like Toastmasters.
