Every year, over 30% of Ontario youth choose not to pursue higher education because of financial barriers.
We think everyone deserves a chance to go to school. In 2018 and 2019 , we raised $156,000 at our golf fundraiser, and Ontario credit unions raised another $20,500 with in-branch campaigns or by becoming a “bursary bumper.” Let’s bump this number in 2020.
INTRODUCING THE 2020 CU SUCCEED YOUTH BURSARY FUNDRAISER
Let’s do more, together! Again this year, we are joining with credit unions across Ontario in support of a single cause: to help more Ontario youth pursue their dreams through educational or vocational training.
Throughout the months of April or May, Ontario credit union staff and members are invited to help support the doctors, teachers, and technicians of tomorrow by raising funds to provide education grants to students in financial need.
Make it a statement…or a question “May We Help”
HOW DO I RAISE FUNDS?
There are two ways to participate in the CU Succeed Youth Bursary Fundraiser, and you can choose to take part in one or both!
1: Giving Week (in-branch promotion)
Select one week in May that’s convenient for your credit union and raise funds among your employees and members! Leading up to Giving Week, campaign posters can be displayed in-branch to let members know about the exciting opportunity to take part. Employees can also engage members to let them know what they’re raising money for and how they can participate.
2: Become a Bursary Bumper
No time to fund raise? No problem! Your credit union can opt to support the CU Succeed Youth Bursary at any of the following levels.
