Legacy Foundation and Scholarship Awards

The delegates viewed two video presentations: one on the significant contributions of the Professional Institute Legacy Foundation, and the other on this year’s Scholarship Laureates.

For almost 15 years, the Institute has been raising money to help kids all across the country.

We’ve enabled kids to fulfill their dreams, we’ve funded life-changing resources for child amputees, and, most of all, we’ve funded scholarships for deserving kids.

We started in 1999 by awarding two $1,000 scholarships. Since then, we’ve awarded dozens of scholarships every year to kids and grandkids of PIPSC members – and to deserving kids across the country who might not otherwise have an opportunity to reach their potential.

We’ve come a long way.

To date, we’ve awarded more than $650,000 in scholarships to 300 students.

All together, we’ve generated more than $937,000 to help young Canadians succeed.

In 2009, we created our registered charity – the Legacy Foundation – to carry on the good work we started in 1999.

The Foundation brings under one roof our scholarship program and our charity golf tournament.

Over the years, we’ve partnered with some great organizations to accomplish our mission of preparing the next generation of young professionals.

And we couldn’t have done this without the support of our sponsors, especially our marquee sponsor, AVIVA.

The Legacy Foundation has proven to be a jewel in the Institute’s crown.

In terms of member benefits and community goodwill, the scholarship program and the Professional Institute Legacy Foundation will undoubtedly prove to be a proud achievement for many years to come.

In 2015, we awarded 37 scholarships worth a total of $54,000.

The Foundation recognizes with gratitude the many hours contributed by the members of the selection panel:

  • Ole Jacobsen, an S.P. Group member from the Prairie/Northwest Territories Region,
  • Joseph Cogné, an A.V. Group member from Québec, and
  • Marion MacEachern, a PIPSC Life Member from the Atlantic Region.
