The family, friends, classmates and teammates of Will Bouchard lost someone very near and dear to their hearts  on May 22, 2011 at the young age of 12. Will was a loving child, loyal friend and a supportive teammate. He was a role model for academic excellence and loyal friendship, and had a passion for living. The Will Bouchard Memorial Foundation has been established to keep Will alive in our thoughts and in our hearts while trying to bring some good from a terrible tragedy. Will’s Foundation provides financial assistance in the form of bursaries, sponsorships and donations to charities focused on 11to15-year-old children, as well as parent and sibling grief support programs in Alberta.

Since its inception in 2012, Will’s Foundation has supported several not-for-profit organizations including The Alberta Children’s Hospital, STARS Air Ambulance, Banded Peak School, Camp Gardiner, Camp Horizon, KidSport Alberta, and Alberta Health Services Parent and Sibling Grief Support Programs.

 

The Foundation also funds the “I Ride For Will” Sponsorship Program which helps to support freestyle skiing development in Canada by annually sponsoring a Freestyle Skiing athlete(s) in Alberta and BC.

 

The Will Bouchard Memorial Foundation is an endowment fund administered by BenefAction Foundation; a charitable Public Foundation registered with Canada Revenue Agency CRA# 80421 3759 RR0001.
