The Jilly Box is passionate about helping to create a more equitable and fair society and we know the important role education plays in achieving this vision. We are pleased to establish an award fund to provide financial support and mentorship opportunities to under represented and marginalized students in pursuit of academic success.
The award will be open to Black and Indigenous and Students of Colour at Okanagan College. With the goal of reaching $50,000 by the end of the Fall 2021 semester, the Jilly Box is making an initial donation of $15,000 and will match all donations up to a maximum of $10,000, enhancing the impact of each donor's gift.
If together we can build a fund of $50,000, twenty underrepresented students will receive bursaries of $2,500, helping them ease some of their financial burdens as they pursue their educational endeavours.
