Friends of Tupper
WHAT IS IT?
The Friends of Tupper Fund is a permanent scholarship/bursary fund set up to financially assist Grade 12 students with their studies following graduation. The Fund was created in 2009 to celebrate the 50thanniversary of Sir Charles Tupper Secondary School.
Starting in 2014, and every year thereafter, the interest generated from our existing donations will allow the Fund to award up to $3500 to graduating students. Awards will be based on recommendations from the school’s existing Scholarship & Awards Committee.
HOW CAN I CONTRIBUTE?
While donations of any size are gratefully welcomed, if you are one of the first 100 former Tupper students to donate $1,000 to the Fund, you’ll be recognized as a ‘Founder’. Your name will be permanently displayed in the school foyer, acknowledging your support of Tupper’s future students. About 40 Founder spots remain to be filled in 2013-2014.
Donations can be made by credit card or cheque as follows:
