The Commerce 1984 Memorial Bursary
In commemoration of their 35th reunion, the Commerce class of 1984 is working together to grow the Commerce 1984 Bursary in memory of their classmates – Chris Carty, Bonita Chow, Elizabeth Christo, Michael Friesen, Stephanie Lalonde, and Adele McCann Lynch. This fund is awarded to a student entering the first year in the Bachelor of Commerce program. Affordable education is essential to ensure all prospective students have access to the Queen’s education, experiences, friendships, and community.
To encourage support towards growing the Commerce 1984 Memorial Bursary, a generous classmate has stepped forward with a matching donation opportunity! Our classmate (who wishes to remain anonymous) is willing to match (1:1) our cash-in donations to our class fund until December 31, 2019. So, if you've been waiting for further inspiration to contribute, the time to give is now! Let's double the impact of our gift to the Commerce 1984 Memorial Bursary and take advantage of this great opportunity while it lasts.
Another option is to support the Commerce Legacy Fund for Student Health and Wellness - a fund started by Richard Tam who was on the Executive Team for Unleash the Noise (held by Jack Project). He was so inspired after his experience that he decided to take the initiative to start the Commerce Legacy Fund for Mental Health support here in Goodes Hall.
The Commerce Legacy Fund for Student Health and Wellness provides:
- on-going professional development and training for staff in addressing student mental health, wellness and diversity
- ongoing development of workshops for students around mental health, wellness and diversity
- Increased availability of 1:1 session with the Smith School of Business Commerce counsellor, for Commerce Students
In celebration of your 35th reunion, please consider joining your classmates by making your gift or pledge today!
