One of our Club’s most important goals is to promote and encourage higher education for women. This has been true from the very start of our Club in 1921. Our Budget for scholarships & math awards for 2020-21 is a whopping $11,950 which is testament to our members’ commitment to raise money for educational purposes. We are going to celebrate our Club’s upcoming Centennial in 2021 with a new Scholarship for a Brock female student. This will be funded from a new Endowment Fund at Niagara Community Foundation (NCF). In 2017, members agreed to use $3,000 of the proceeds of the 2016 House Tour, plus $4,500 from our General Purpose Endowment Fund’s accumulated earnings to create a new Fund. The earnings on the new 100th Anniversary Endowment Fund will be used every year starting in 2021 to give a scholarship to a female Brock student who is a first generation student, meaning her parents did not receive a post-secondary education.
On November 14th, 2017, we launched our Founders’ Circle Campaign to raise at least $15,000 for the new Endowment Fund. Our goal was reached by December 2018. Those who donated to our Founders’ Circle campaign
- Received a tax receipt for their donation
- Will be recognized in all future annual CSC100AEF Financial Reports and on our website.
- Recognition Levels were: Platinum $1000+, Gold $500-999, Silver $250-499, Bronze $125-249
