UCT Charities was established in 1997 to assist individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities, primarily by providing scholarships through the UCT Scholarship Program. Over the years, this support has expanded to include other programs and projects that benefit a variety of individuals.
This spirit of support led UCT Charities to establish the Bridges of Friendship Award, which grants two cash awards of up to $5,000 each annually to two local charitable organizations, one in Canada and the other in the U.S.
UCT Charities is a 501.c.3 charitable organization and is supported entirely through donations. Donations may be tax-deductible and are cumulative.
