After monitoring the COVID-19 news the last several weeks, we have made the difficult decision to cancel our Golf Classic that was scheduled to take place on June 22, 2020.

If you are still looking for opportunities to support our students we recently established the Support our Students (SOS) fund to help the ones experiencing unexpected financial hardships due to COVID-19.

Many of the jobs our students rely on to live and pay their expenses have disappeared — and that means the hope these students have for finishing their education is disappearing too.

In recent weeks, emergency bursary requests have soared to levels well beyond what we have ever seen, and we are aiming to raise $500,000 to help support our students through this crisis. By combining our own funds with support from the provincial government and IGNITE Student Union, we have already helped 2,300 students. The need for support is still high and it is rising.

If you are in a position and would like to make a gift to the SOS Fund please let us know. Humber is committed to doing everything possible to help our students and will match all donations made until May 14. This donation is also eligible for a full charitable tax receipt.

We hope we can gather again for the 2021 Humber Golf Classic.

If you have any questions or would like more information please contact Shannon De Mello, Senior Advancement Officer, Events at shannon.demello@humber.ca

Thank you for supporting the 2019 Humber Golf Classic

Despite stormy skies, $165,000 was raised for student awards and scholarships on Monday, June 10 at the 2019 Humber Golf Classic.

Presented by Chartwells, the event took place at The Club at Bond Head. More than 240 golfers, sponsors and supporters were in attendance, picking up their clubs and opening their wallets for promising students in need. With the funds from this year included, the Humber Golf Classic has now raised a total of more than $840,000 for our students since launching in 2013.

Thank you to everyone who supported the 2019 Golf Classic. Whether by participating as a sponsor, playing in the tournament, volunteering or donating to the auctions, the success of this event would not be possible without your support.
