More Manitobans will have access to a transformative education thanks to a generous $1-million gift from The Joyce Family Foundation.
The money will support the University of Manitoba’s Youth in Care Tuition Grants, a relatively new program that provides youth who are currently in, or who have been in, the care of Manitoba’s Child and Family Services the opportunity to receive post-secondary education at the U of M.
“Education can be a great catalyst. That is why The Joyce Family Foundation is happy to provide Youth in Care Tuition Grants, so more deserving youth may imagine their future and pursue their education at the U of M,” says philanthropist Ron Joyce.
This support furthers the impact The Joyce Family Foundation’s philanthropy has had on Canadian society. The foundation has a legacy of investing in programs that enhance the social, economic and emotional engagement opportunities for young Canadians. This is the first gift of its kind the Joyce Foundation has made in Manitoba.
