Here is how we are doing so far. Join the campaign!
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 2021 we raised $83,700 at our golf fundraiser, and Ontario credit unions raised another $11,200 with in-branch campaigns or by becoming a “bursary booster.” Let’s bump this number in 2022.
INTRODUCING THE 2022 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 a week (or two or three) in May, April or June 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. You can set up your own peer-to-peer campaign. Create one large team (your credit union), or individual branches can do so and challenge other branches. Check it out here.
2: Become a Bursary Booster
No time to fundraise? No problem! Your credit union can opt to support the CU Succeed Youth Bursary at any of the following levels.
You can request a receipt from firstname.lastname@example.org.
