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, we raised $88,000 at our golf fundraiser, and Ontario credit unions raised another $16,000 with in-branch campaigns or becoming a "bursary bumper." Let's bump this number in 2019.
INTRODUCING THE 2019 CU SUCCEED YOUTH BURSARY FUNDRAISER
Let’s do more, together! 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 month of 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.

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.
Below, there is a link to register, as well as a link to a bunch of ideas you can use to raise funds as well as campaign support materials.
2: Become a Bursary Bumper
No time to fund raise? No problem! Your credit union can opt to support the CU Succeed Youth Bursary by becoming a Bursary Bumper.
