Heads Up

Welcome to Heads Up, your one-stop source for news about your son’s upcoming activities and events.

The countdown is on. Don’t miss out on this matching gift opportunity

Jay A. Fishman, father of Eric J. Rogic ’15 has kindly agreed to match up to $100,000 to all families who participate in the Class of 2015 Scholarship Fund.

In honour of your son’s graduation and their time at UCC, the Class of 2015 Scholarship Fund has been established and will be distributed to a boy demonstrating the greatest need. Although the match is specifically for the Class of 2015 Scholarship Fund, you have the option to direct your gift to any area of interest to you and your family.  Any gift, of any amount, will be gratefully received.

Currently, the Class of 2015 Scholarship Fund has raised $11,712 from 11 families and friends. With the matching gift, that brings the total to $23,424. In addition to this, 12 families have given to other priorities bringing the total participation to 25 families and friends. Last year the Class of 2014 had 70 families contribute to the Class of 2014 Scholarship Fund and other priorities.

All donations will count towards the Leaving Class participation. The total dollars raised will be announced at the Leaving Class ceremony on May 25.

The goal of the parent Leaving Class gift is 100 per cent participation.

In addition to the Leaving Class gift supported by the parents, the Board of Stewards will be selecting a tangible item they feel will represent their class. Each IB2 student will be ask to make a donation in support of this item. This of course is voluntary, but as boys do love competition, the house that has 100 per cent participation will receive a pizza and wing lunch, and bragging rights of course. A plaque will also be created for their item.

Donating is easy and may be made online at www.ucc.on.ca/MakeaGift, or by calling annual giving manager Joanne Weedmark at 416-488-1125, ext. 2000.

Thank you to everyone who has supported this fund so far! If you’ve any questions please feel free to reach out to Joanne Weedmark in the Advancement office.
