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.
