“Promoting the teaching and learning of English as an additional language”

The TEAL Charitable Foundation (TCF) was established by BC TEAL in 1986 and is registered as a charitable organization with Revenue Canada. TCF’s charitable status enables it to engage in fundraising activities to support its mandate. The Foundation supports the teaching and learning of English as an additional language by presenting ten annual awards and scholarships, valued at $18,000, to learners and educators. The TEAL Charitable Foundation’s awards and scholarships are funded through the interest accrued from the TCF endowment with the Vancouver Foundation.
