Earlier this year, SPE Canadian Educational Trust was converted into a new entity, the SPE Canadian Educational Foundation (SPECEF). With the new governance structure, SPECEF has the flexibility to create new programs, scholarships, and energy educational initiatives that will benefit SPE Canada members.
SPE members can support the SPECEF through one-time or monthly donations. Charitable contributions to SPECEF are tax deductible.
