The Alumni Association is offering to match all donations to the Student Relief Fund up to $25,000, if made before April 30, 2021.
“The Alumni Association Board of Directors recognized that in addition to the usual challenges that every postsecondary student faces, many have been coping with the loss of employment in our service and retail sectors this year,” says Karen Boz (BAdmin’92), the current AALU President.
“We’ve heard that this loss of income has meant increased hardship, and caused some students to choose between buying groceries, or purchasing required resources for their courses.”
Through offering the matching gift opportunity, the AALU Board is hoping to inspire fellow alumni as well as friends of Lakehead University to make a donation and support students.
“By helping to build the Student Relief Fund you will be assisting students with their basic unmet needs such as housing relief, food security, and other unforeseen challenges,” Karen says. “We hope that everyone will come together to help our students complete their Lakehead for Life journey.”
