Jim Howard Post-secondary Education Fund

$14,555 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 115 people in 2 months
Created February 3, 2019
Jim Howard has been a long time contributor to the community of Aylmer (Gatineau), Quebec, and Eardley Elementary School. Both of his children, Jeryka and Jacksyn, attended Eardley. Jim supported the school as a parent, supply teacher, and coach. However, Jim has been diagnosed with an incurable form of cancer and he will not be able to complete his plans for putting his children through post-secondary education. Both Jeryka and Jacksyn are currently in high school (as of 2019). Therefore, we are stepping in with the goal of providing a $10k base of funding for Jeryka and Jacksyn.

It is with a heavy heart that I must inform you that Jim Howard died, Thursday, 11 April, from cancer. I’ve known Jim since the late 1990s when we worked together at PWHS. Both of his children, Jacksyn and Jeryka attended Eardley and Jim gave the G6 farewell speech at Jacksyn’s leaving ceremony. I think Jim would want us to remember him as the smiling, happy and confident man he was and continues to be in the minds of many. Natalie Howard has taken control of our fundraising effort here and the campaign is set to run until 30 April. I wish Jim’s family a bright future as he hoped to set for them.

We have had great success with the campaign to help Jim and his family. In just 9 days, we've surpassed the goal of raising 10 000.00. This does not mean the fundraising is at an end. As we can all appreciate, post-secondary education is costly. The campaign is set to run until April 30th. Meanwhile, the process to transfer the total amount, to date, will be underway this week.

Thank you, everyone, who made the contributions to help. A copy of comments from donors will be shared with Jim.
