Most outstanding of his benefactions is THE LEONARD FOUNDATION. It was created in 1916 and revised in 1923. The FOUNDATION has a Charitable Trust and also a Financial Assistance Program for students who, without help from the Foundation, would not be able to continue their education. It is significant that Colonel Leonard placed emphasis on financial need rather than high academic achievement. He also believed that the recipients of his awards should have qualities for leadership so that Canada could grow. Over the years, the amount available for the Financial Assistance Program has grown to approximately $175,000.00 annually.
