2019 Scholarship Challenge

2019 Scholarship Challenge progress

40 Days of Giving, May 21 - July 1, 2019

The 2019 Scholarship fundraising campaign begins and ends with a party! The only question remaining is, “Where’s the cake?”

It is a truth universally acknowledged that UELAC likes to celebrate; the word “celebrate” is even found in our mission statement! This year we recognize and celebrate the 200th anniversary of the birth of Queen Victoria, granddaughter of King George III. Born on May 24, 1819 her birthday became an official holiday in 1901 and is still celebrated in Canada today. In recognition of Queen Victoria’s bicentennial anniversary, the 2019 Scholarship Challenge begins on May 21. Our closing date is Canada Day.

Your gift to scholarship brings the newest developments in Loyalist research to our doorstep. A twenty-dollar ($20) individual donation adds your name to our list of generous donors. In the spirit of the bicentennial we are asking for a commitment of $200 per branch. This year’s celebration goal is $8000.00. At $200 per day over 40 Days of Giving, we will reach that goal. We look forward to sharing donation updates and ‘Branches in Support of Scholarship’ in both Loyalist Trails and Executive Notes newsletters.

For donations of $20 or more, a tax receipt will be issued by UELAC Head Office, or by CanadaHelps if donating online. Donations must specify ‘Scholarship Endowment Fund.’ Should you wish to make a memorial gift we will ensure that recognition is given to those you wish to honour through your donation.

The UELAC gratefully acknowledges the financial support from our generous donors.

About the Endowment Fund

On June 29, 2016 the UELAC Dominion Council voted overwhelmingly in favour of the establishment of the Loyalist Scholarship Endowment Fund. Seed money of $33,580 was earmarked for investment to generate income in support of UELAC Loyalist Scholarship. With the establishment of the Loyalist Scholarship Endowment Fund, branches and individuals can give to a fund dedicated to grow and support Loyalist scholarship for years to come. For donations of $20 or more, a tax receipt will be issued by UELAC Head Office, or by CanadaHelps if donating online. Donations to this account must specify Loyalist Scholarship Endowment Fund.
