The K-Rock Children’s Trust Fund is a registered charity that was founded by Newcap Radio Inc. in a desire to reach out to the larger community and fill a recognized need. The mandate of the Trust Fund is to provide assistance to families facing financial hardship due to the illness of a child. Direct aid is provided to sick children by purchasing medications and medical supplies, and covering costs associated with medical treatment. Everything from the purchase of glasses and medicines for sick children to travel, meal and accommodation cost for a parent forced to bring a child to the children’s hospital is addressed by the K-Rock Children’s Trust Fund.


Recipients of the fund are identified by provincial social workers who determine the need and then request funding to fill it. Applications for funding must be submitted by a local social worker to be considered for funding.


Financial resources are raised through special event fundraisers, corporate and community partnerships and through the generosity of people who make it a point to contribute to the K-Rock Children’s Trust Fund.


The following chart is indicative of the need that exists in our community – a need that continues to grow.
