Sc’97 Bursary – Building our Legacy
Over the past 20 years, the Sc 97 bursary has provided funding for 21 students and distributed $34,680 in support to those students.
We would like to focus on the Sc’97 legacy and growing our fund but we’d like to do it a bit differently. Instead of asking you to make a one-time gift today to support our fund, we are asking all of Sc’97 to consider making a pledge between now and our 25th Reunion.
Please consider giving $19.97 a month or a multiple of $19.97 ($39.94, $59.91, etc) for the next five years. This type of donation is easy to set up and can be done right from your credit card. For $19.97 you could buy car wax, beard shampoo, a reusable grill mat, neon glow kit, four tall unicorn frappuccinos, body shaping neoprene pants, or invest in the future of Queen's. Tough call with the pants available but we know what the right choice is...
Our goal is to double our current bursary endowment from $52,500 to $100,000 so that we can start supporting two students by the time we hit our 25th reunion. Then we’ll set our sights even higher by looking at reaching $225,000, which will mean that it will be renewable – support can be given to an individual student every year of their education, not just in first year.
If this doesn’t work for you, that’s OK. We hope that you’ll consider giving whatever amount is meaningful to you, even as a one-time gift. No amount is too small as we are hoping for high participation numbers and for all of us to build the Sc’97 legacy. Future generations should know how great the class was with the Clark Hall logo in their crest!
Thank you for your support!
