Isobel Carter Youth Fund

Dan and Isobel Carter

In 2004, my mother, Isobel Carter passed away. That year I decided that I would start a fund that would follow her own spirit of unconditional love that she had passed on to me. My mother’s belief was that we should always encourage young people to succeed and teach them to reach out to others and develop compassion. We must always find a way to lead, give, share, inspire, and never give up on anyone as we are all precious gifts.

Since 2005, I have awarded The Isobel Carter Youth Award to a child from Oshawa Community Health Centre who is under the age of 15 and demonstrates compassion and leadership unconditionally; or as my mother would say “has a good soul”.  In 2008, I added an award to a young person from outside of Oshawa Community Health Centre.  They are each awarded a $500 GIC to be used in the future for their education. The award celebrates young people that show kindness of heart, a generous soul and leadership when it’s most important.




Isobel Carter Youth Award Recipients:

“I think that this award is better than an Academy Award because I am receiving this award for being me and I think that’s great.”
