Brock, Concordia each receive $1 M donations

November 17, 2014

Brock University and Concordia University have each received donations of $1 M. Brock received its donation from the family of local businessman H Rudi Kroeker; the gift will support the Cairns Family Health and Bioscience Research Complex. “We sincerely hope that the support we’ve provided to this facility will allow faculty, staff, students, and entrepreneurs to excel in their fields, and pursue their research dreams—for all of our benefits,” said Kroeker. Concordia’s gift comes from the National Bank and will be used to establish an initiative in entrepreneurship and family business at the John Molson School of Business; it will also establish a National Bank Entrepreneur-in-Residence at the institution. “This initiative will reinforce graduate and undergraduate studies at Concordia and further distinguish the Molson school,” said Concordia President Alan Shepard. Brock News Release | Montreal Gazette
