Proud of Two Languages Circle
What can you do as a parent to help ensure your children won’t miss out on becoming bilingual? By helping CPF to make your case through research. Research on education issues is being conducted across Canada every day, and CPF is a major player in commissioning some of the leading research on second-language learning. Solid, research-backed advocacy efforts can be the key to making school administrators understand that bilingualism isn’t just a nice dream: it deserves to be a reality for your child and others in your community.
It’s never been easier to support research for FSL education. You can prearrange to have your donation to CPF deducted monthly from your bank account or credit card—it’s easy! Sign up for CPF’s Proud of Two Languages Circle, and whether you can give $5 a month or $50, your funds are supporting the work that goes towards improving the quality FSL programs Canada has to offer, and providing you with the facts you need to help your child.
On the 15th of each month your gift will be deducted and you’ll have a record of your gift on your bank or credit card statement. You save time and money without dishing out for cheques and stamps, and so does CPF! We’ll send you one tax receipt for your total gifts in February of each year. Your information will be kept completely confidential, and you can cancel or revise your donation at any time.
To sign up , cancel, or adjust your donation amount, call CPF at 613.235.1481 x236 or email [email protected].
