|Time's Running Out to Double Your Donation to CPRS Foundation
It’s been more than two months since the launch of the CPRS Foundation Indigenous PR Student Scholarship Fund. To date, 31 donors have helped raise almost $6,535, all of which will be matched dollar-for-dollar by our five foundational donors. We have another $18,500 to raise!
Consider giving before December 31, 2020 and your donation will be matched dollar-for-dollar by our five industry leading donors: Bruce MacLellan, APR. FCPRS LM, President & CEO, Proof Strategies and a past Chair of the Foundation; Dan Tisch, APR, FCPRS, President & CEO, Argyle Public Relationships; Andrew Molson, Chairman of Avenir Global; Lisa Kimmel, President & CEO, Edelman Canada; and Judy Lewis, Co-founder & Partner, Strategic Objectives.
The Foundation anticipates the first scholarship will be awarded to a PR student who is a member of the First Nations, Inuit or Métis nations or communities in the spring of 2021. This first-of-a-kind scholarship underscores the PR profession’s commitment to greater representation of the public we serve and with whom we communicate, at all levels of professional practice.
Donations can be made through the CPRS Foundation website (which links to CanadaHelps.org). Just select “CPRS Foundation Indigenous PR Student Scholarship Fund” from the drop down menu on the Donate page.
Thank you to all who have donated!
