SWA Foundation

The Sealant and Waterproofing Association, through consultation with the membership, has created the SWA Foundation, a body to oversee all fundraising activities of SWA. The mandate of the Foundation is to develop and enhance a greater awareness of the sealant and waterproofing sector within the construction industry in general as well as the architectural/engineering and specifier community. It will build recognition within the educational sector via the SWA Scholarship Program which will allow the association to reach out to those students currently enrolled in a construction related program and hopefully direct some of their interest to the sealant and waterproofing portion of building construction.

It is the intention to offer the first scholarships for September 2017 enrollment and award two scholarships of $2,500 each to two students enrolled in colleges in construction and building science related programs. The goal is to raise a minimum of $20,000 in 2017 in order to: fund these scholarships, be comfortable making commitments that will renew annually, and be able to grow the program for years to come.

Founding Members of the SWA Scholarship Program receive recognition via email blasts, recognition at all SWA events including seminars, the golf tournament, Ski Day and the Fishing Derby. These Founding Members may also use the SWA Foundation logo on their company website and meet with the scholarship recipients at SWA events. Most importantly, contributing to the Foundation demonstrates that your organization is a strong supporter of education within our industry to your employees, current clients and future clients.

September 2019 Update

SWA has provided bursaries to Fleming College in 2018 and 2019 under its ongoing commitment. These have directly impacted students enrolled in the first and/or second year of a program in their School of Trades. The bursary plays an integral role in helping students with the financial burden of post-secondary education.

The 2019 recipients had these words of appreciation for SWA members:

"Thank you for the Sealant & Waterproofing Association Bursary. This bursary will help assist with me finishing my studies and buying material and tools." - Gregory

"I would like to say thank you for everything and it will help me for many things to achieve my academic success." - Cameron
