To date, $417,000 has been raised for WOMEN’S inTUITION.
More than 100 donors gathered last November to celebrate the movement. Guests met Georgian students from a variety of academic programs to learn more about the college and were entertained by such talented female musicians as Juno Award-winner Chantal Kreviazuk.
About WOMEN’S inTUITION
Georgian College is asking women to empower other women by joining together to raise funds for awards and scholarships for women in financial need who are enrolled in Georgian’s apprenticeship, certificate, diploma and degree programs.
WOMEN’S inTUITION was founded, and is championed by, volunteer Giselle Bodkin.
To date, the campaign has assisted 42 female students, many of whom are single mothers struggling to pay for their education as they try to make a better life for their family.
You have the opportunity to help female students attending Georgian achieve their academic and personal goals by investing in WOMEN’S inTUITION.
Donating to WOMEN’S inTUITION
You can become a WOMEN’S inTUITION donor with a donation of $50 a month for five years (total of $3,000).
One of the most popular ways to give is to direct your donation to the WOMEN’S inTUITION endowment fund. It’s a great way to give in perpetuity as the principal amount remains intact and the interest provides funding for annual scholarships.
Your donation will go directly to a female student in financial need.
How WOMEN’S inTUITION started
Giselle Bodkin, a volunteer member on Georgian’s Advancement Committee, was inspired to start this campaign after attending a Women Moving Women event. She is making her donation in honour of her late sister-in-law who studied Nursing part-time at Georgian. Read Giselle’s story.
