A new crowdfunding site has been launched by the University of Winnipeg Foundation to help support research, students and projects on campus.
UWinnipeg is the first post-secondary institution in Manitoba to have such a site, which has already brought in $81,015 for the Lindor Reynolds Youth-in-Care Tuition Waiver Bursary.
“The website provides an interactive online platform to showcase some of UWinnipeg’s innovative research and projects,” said Dr. Annette Trimbee, UWinnipeg president and vice-chancellor. ”It’s great to see the community respond to enrich our students’ experience, and to support faculty and staff in turninfg ideas into action.”
The University of Winnipeg Foundation is a registered charity recognized by the Canada Revenue Agency and all donations made are tax deductible with receipts provided.
