BURSARIES, SCHOLARSHIPS AND AWARDS CEREMONY
Following the tradition of lending support to the students of John Abbott College, the Foundation presented bursaries and scholarships totaling $57,995 at the Annual Awards Ceremony held June 8, 2017.
This ceremony is an opportunity for student recipients to meet those responsible for the financial gifts, in person, putting a face to the name.
On June 5, the John Abbott College Foundation held the 15th edition of its annual fundraising golf tournament. Tournament co-chairs Serge Poirier, General Manager, Caisse Desjardins de l’Ouest-de-l’Île and Greg Foss, Alumnus and former John Abbott football player presented a cheque to John Abbott College for $ 50,000 net.
Now that the accounting has been completed, the net profit for the event amounts to $66,500.

LOONIE LINE – MARCH 22, 2017
The loonies have been counted – the results are in – and the records have all been broken! We raised $20,006 on the Loonie Line 2017 today!
Started back in 2003, loonies are stuck to two-sided tape that runs the length of College – almost 800 feet (243 m)- to raise money for JAC students in need.
Everyone can use some help occasionally and if that means helping a student stay in school, the Assistance Fund at John Abbott is there for them. The Fund is set up to help with groceries, textbooks, registration fees and much more.
