At Roasters Foundation, we believe that building community is about making everyone part of the solution.

Roasters Foundation is dedicated to making a difference by helping people create their own success stories. We value the personal accounts shared by those who have been touched by our programs. They serve as a constant reminder that when people have the will to dream and are provided with the tools they need to succeed, they can accomplish anything.

Here’s what the nurses are saying about the Knowledge Fund:

Attending an international conference has permitted me to acquire new knowledge and confirm existing practices. To have the opportunity to meet specialists in my field has been an inspiration. In fact, having met a prominent author and researcher in the field of neonatal care, I became so interested in the subject that I decided to pursue a Masters’ degree. Conferences help us to keep up with the latest developments in our field so that we can continue to improve our quality of care.

Being funded to attend conferences related to my field of practice makes me feel valued and supported in maintaining a high level of excellence.

I truly appreciate the continued support which enables me to attend conferences and workshops offered throughout the year. Without their support, I would not be able to participate in these opportunities. Not only am I gaining useful skills and knowledge that I can apply on the job and share with my colleagues, these opportunities enable me to network with others – a useful tool in gaining insight and expertise within the field of nursing informatics and education.

Thank you for your support. Nursing is an amazing profession, one we should take great pride in. As an administrator and nurse educator, we need to encourage new entries to the profession, provide mentoring, professional development, role modelling and support, and for the managers, the tools to help the new nurses. Your support to our profession is much appreciated.

Here are some of the Thank You letters we have received from students in our “Adopt-a-Student” Program:

I’m glad to know that years of hard work and study have finally paid off and this reward is a great help financially to continuing my education.

Getting this scholarship relieved a lot of financial stress in my life and allowed me to focus more on my studies than on paying my bills. I will continue to work hard this last semester of my degree and I will not forget the impact that your incredible generosity had on my life.

This bursary comes to me in a time of great financial need and it will help me to continue on with my university education. For this you have my gratitude.
