In September 1982, the charter class of 27 students walked through the door at Catherine Booth Bible College. Fast forward 35 years and at Booth University College we are making a significant investment in the lives of over 450 students on our Winnipeg campus and via distance learning through our School for Continuing Studies. As we wrap up our 35th anniversary year I would like to thank you for celebrating with us.
Today, I have news to share of an incredible opportunity available to Booth UC.
For the first time, we have been invited to participate in the Manitoba Scholarships and Bursaries Initiative (MSBI). A matching gift program through the Province of Manitoba, this initiative helps institutions support students that require financial assistance through scholarship and bursary awards.
What this means for Booth UC is that for every $2 raised towards scholarship and bursary support through private donations we get an additional $1 from MSBI (up to $25,000); therefore the first $50,000 raised can be turned into $75,000!
Each year Booth UC provides approximately $200,000 in scholarship and bursary support for students and last year with your help we were able to assist 96 students with financial aid towards their education.
To take advantage of this matching gift program we need to hear from you. Please make a gift to support a student today. You have the power to change a life. To donate, just click on the red Give Today button.
May God bless you deeply.
