Many parents are unable to attend because of financial restraints and travel costs. We are seeking to offer bursaries for these conferences towards birth parents, foster parents, adoptive parents, and grandparents taking care of individuals with FASD to attend as this group are those who would reap the biggest awards in attending these conferences. Ultimately, your gift will provide assistance to those who are in need.
