Scholarship Fund

A little over 4 years ago, we had the idea to fund a student scholarship in the name of George Brown College Retirees. Since then we have helped various students by awarding $2,000 in annual scholarships and we have raised more than $16,000.00 thanks to your generosity. We have set up two accounts for the Scholarship monies. The first account, "The Retirees' Association Scholarship Fund" currently holds a balance of $3,470.00. It is from this account that we award our annual $500.00 scholarship. The second account, "The Retirees' Pre-endowment Fund" currently holds $13,480.00. This second fund is like a savings account: we are attempting to raise that balance to $20,000.00 because at that point the interest from that money will be used to award a student scholarship forever. When you make a donation, or when we collect funds through fund raising, that money is deposited into the the first account - and periodically we transfer money from the first account to the pre-endowment fund, always keeping a minimum balance in the first account so we can continue to offer our current annual scholarship no matter what the balance of the Pre-endowment fund. We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of you who have donated to this cause either through a direct donation or by participating in our various fund raising activities. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us. Click the button to meet the most recent recipient.
