Judy Jamieson BLG Family Foundation

The Judy Jamieson BLG Family Foundation was established to assist families in overcoming the financial hurdles of acquiring educational opportunities that would make a difference to their economic wellbeing.   

Education is a key component to economic stability and freedom for families. Education benefits not just the individual but entire families and, by extension, entire communities.

Unfortunately, monetary shortfalls are often the single major roadblock to acquiring the education and training required to achieve income stability. In single parent households, where cost of living can be a challenge, saving for education can be virtually impossible. Often, the cost of a single designation can stand in the way of achieving the stability that all families deserve. The opportunity cost of such lost potential is incalculable.  

Our aim is to provide academic grants to single parent families and, in doing so, provide a hand up to the hardworking people who are most challenged by the monetary hurdles of saving for education.   

Qualified grant applicants may seek tuition funding for any academic undertaking, including post secondary, industry licensing and trades certifications. Applicants are required to meet certain qualification criteria in order for grants to be approved.
