Scholarships & Bursaries


Scholarships and Bursary Funds fall under the classification of "Field of Interest Funds".

These funds work much like the Community Fund, except that donors will identify an area of interest that they would like to target their support (ex. heritage, children and youth, relief of poverty, education (scholarship/bursary), etc.). The donor empowers the Foundation’s Committees to select independent recipients based on fair and legitimate eligibility criteria suggested by the donor. Scholarship funds award high academic performance while bursary funds concentrate on financial need and satisfactory academic progress. The minimum donation to establish a Field of Interest or Scholarship or Bursary Fund is $30,000.

Each new Scholarship & Bursary Fund will have 5 years from the date of the initial donation to reach the minimum balance level until then, no annual awards will be made (subject to CRA requirements from year to year). Scholarship & Bursary Funds not reaching the minimum balance level within the stipulated 5 year period will automatically revert to the Community Endowment Fund. If, at that time, the value meets or exceeds the amount required for a Named Fund, the option will exist to establish a Named Fund within the Community Endowment Fund.

The scholarship and bursary awards must be made at arm’s length, the recipient cannot be related to the donor and the selection of the award is made in a fair and transparent process. The Foundation will have a selection committee, with at least one board member, which donors can join. The donor(s) must not comprise more than 50% of the selection committee. The selection committee recommends the recipients to the Foundation and the Foundation accepts or rejects the recommendation of the committee.
