Symington Endowment Fund


The Symington Endowment Fund

The Symington Endowment Fund is a donor advised fund held by the Coquitlam Foundation. It was established in 2009 by Vivien Symington, creator of Empowering Steps Movement Therapy, in honour of her parents Dr. David C Symington and Evelyn Symington. Vivien established the fund to empower children with neuro-developmental disabilities, youth-at-risk, and high performance gymnasts in the pursuit of excellence. Since 2009 the fund has dispersed over $40,000 in the form of grants and bursaries to children and youth.

Over the past two year this event has raised over $20,000 for the Endowment Fund. Due to this event and the other fundraisers throughout the year, the Symington Endowment Fund was able to hand out $12,000 in bursaries this Spring.

A large appreciation goes out to all families and friends who came out to support the event! This is an annual event that we want to keep growing so we can continue to grow the Symington Endowment Fund!
