Programs and Board of Directors 2014/2016
The CIBPA Foundation has two programs:
1) The Annual Campaign
Fundraising for the Bursary Program will continue so scholarships and bursaries can continue to be awarded on an annual basis. Scholarships for excellence are in the amount of $1000 and the bursaries range in amount from $2000 to $4000.
2) The Endowment Fund
The CIBPA Foundation is in the process of creating an Endowment Fund for Education to promote education in the Canadian-Italian Community. This should be self-sustaining program that will not rely on annual fundraising.
Such a Fund would require a substantial monetary reserve to be meaningful and successful.
The CIBPA Bursary Program is the largest private scholarship and bursary program for higher education in the Italian Community in Quebec.
This program has been in existence for over 50 years and is the pride of the CIBPA and of the Italian Community.
It is essential that those who have agreed to sit on the Board of the CIBPA Foundation help with fundraising for the Endowment Fund. It is also important that we encourage our members, particularly, our young members, to be part of this process.
