Phil Beakhouse Fund for PALS

The intent and purpose of the fund is to support adult literacy in our community by providing annual grants to the PALS Project Adult Literacy Society.

We are honoured to have received a selfless donation from Phil Beakhouse’s estate. Phil was a student and an honorary member of PALS. Phil passed away in 2019. This gift is like no other we have ever received. “Thank you” does not seem to say enough, but “Thank you” for thinking about us.

PALS would like to thank the Beakhouse family for supporting Phil in his decision to include us in his estate and helping us change lives through literacy.

PALS has initiated a Phil Beakhouse Learner Achievement Award in his name to honour Phil. Every year in April, this award is presented to one adult learner who has demonstrated commitment and hard work in developing their literacy skills and raising awareness of PALS and the need for foundational adult literacy in our community.

We are so grateful for this unexpected generosity. This is unprecedented in the history of PALS.
