We have GB’s approval & appreciation to start a series of Alumni-funded book prizes for Grades 9-11 to be awarded at grad. Each prize will be in the $50-100 range, with a prize for each of 3 students in each of those 3 grades – total just under $1000/yr.
We can use your help to reach our target of $1000/yr … we’re hoping that in any given year, 50 different alumni will contribute $20 each. You can contribute any amount, donations of $20 or more will receive tax receipts.
You can mail or drop off a cheque at GB (3 Borrowman Place, Wpg R3G 1M6). Cheques should be made to “Children’s Heritage Fund” (Winnipeg School Division’s charitable donations fund) with a sub-note “Gordon Bell Alumni Book Prizes”. Alternatively, you can go to the GB website (gordonbell.ca) and use their PayPal function.
If you can, please also indicate your graduation year, so we can track how much each grad class has donated. We’ll count all donations towards our “Alumni 5k Race” to see which GB grad classes contribute the most annually, with each class’ annual target of $5000.
