We are really pleased to have this website, Facebook, and Twitter up and running. Now we can easily keep folks up to date with fundraising successes, events, and our progress on distributing the moneys raised to the causes identified by friends and family.
We are happy to announce that, as of November 1, 2011, the Fund has raised over $30,000!
This means that we can proceed with the University of Toronto to set up the first scholarship in Skip’s name. The advisors will be working with the U of T to set up the terms of reference for the scholarship and the “mechanics” of making the contribution in perpetuity.
We are increasing our focus on raising the funds needed to set up a scholarship at the University of Calgary. We need another $10,000 to be raised in order to have the minimum amount for such as scholarship.
Also, we are working with interested parties to see if we can set up a “lecture series” at prominent universities . These lectures would support civil discourse on climate change, new ideas for mitigation and reduction of emissions and other topics of interest. We hope to have news on these efforts shortly.
