Rotary Club Lionsgate, established in 1975, is a service club dedicated to improving the lives of others both in our community and around the world. Located in North Vancouver one of the primary charitable initiatives is investing in our youth and future leaders. Through funding scholarships for undergraduate, graduate study and trades training we aim to help struggling youth get the education that they deserve.
Over the past 3 years we have raised over $23,190 and funded 22 scholarships for youth in desperate need of funds to help pay for furthering their education. Our scholarships are open to all students of the North Shore, including high school or other youth in need of education funding assistance, and or other aid support. Students go through a formal application process and funding decisions are based on a review or suitable applications.
We have had overwhelming demand from high school and other youth for scholarships, but we have not been able to fully meet the fundraising goals required to give all deserving students scholarship opportunities.
We are hoping through that this campaign we can raise enough funds to give scholarships to another 5 North Shore youth.
The Rotary Lionsgate Foundation is a registered charity and for donations of $25 or more we can issue tax receipts.
