The Charlene Reaveley Children’s Charity board of directors proudly announces that we have awarded 16 graduating students a $1000 bursary to pursue their academic endeavors.
As COVID-19 continues, CRCCS has had to adjust our fundraising options. The flagship fundraising event, the Annual Gala, was canceled (3rd year running), which has significantly impacted our funding in that capacity. Fortunately, CRCCS has a strong group of supporters who believe in the work CRCCS does and the lives it affects, so we have had some impact on the programs that CRCCS offers, but we continue to support over 400 families in BC.
Ensuring funds are allocated to graduating students is a priority as CRCCS recognizes the financial barriers to entering and pursuing post-secondary education. Setting aside $16,000 for graduating youth recognizes the importance of assisting them with their academic goals.
The Charlene Reaveley Children’s Charity is excited for the students graduating this spring with big academic dreams and ambitions awaiting them. Although Covid-19 continues to make the world look a little different, their future is yet to be unfolded, and roadmaps are yet to be created.
These graduating students have many opportunities that await them. Their adversity does not define them as they step toward their future.
Here's a glimpse into who we've supported...
16 students total
5 male students and 11 female students
11 different communities all across the lower mainland including Vancouver Island (Abbotsford, Chilliwack, Coquitlam, Delta, Mission, Nanaimo, Port Coquitlam, Port Moody, Richmond, Surrey, Vancouver)
4 students have lost a mother, 10 students have lost a father
2 students have lost both parents
CRCCS is proud to have such tremendous support from the community to be able to offer services like the bursary program.
The work we do only happens in collaboration. Thank you for being so supportive.
