As a result of the generosity of our many sponsors, supporters and credit union fundraising efforts, OCUF provided $75,000 in bursaries to 38 deserving students.
The CU succeed bursary has given me the freedom to focus on my education in order to achieve my academic and future career goals. I am forever thankful to those who support this bursary, as your support makes a big difference and allows students more flexibility during the school year." - Julia D.
Wow what an outcome!
Sponsors and participants truly out did themselves this year in support of the 27th Golf Classic fundraiser. A total of $88,015 was raised for the CU Succeed Youth Bursary program in 2019.
If you cooked or golfed you told us you enjoyed the day. Thank you for your support!
Mark your calendar for Monday June 10, 2019 when we get to do it all again.
Alterna Savings contributed to the CU Succeed Youth Bursary campaign big time raising an incredible $11,000! From raffling gift baskets, to buying 110 anniversary baseball t-shirts, to hosting the Great Grilled Cheese Contest, employees put their creativity and fundraising skills to work. Frugina Ball, Region Head, Member Experience, GTA, commented “We are very grateful to have such a caring staff and supportive member base. This year we set the bar high at $11,000 for our 110th birthday on September 3rd this year and are ecstatic we reached it!”
