June 19, 2015

This week, Nova Scotia Community College received a gift of $4.6 M from the Joyce Foundation, a private family foundation created by philanthropist Ronald V Joyce. The $4.6 M is the largest single donation that NSCC has ever received and will be used to create $1,000 bursaries for 140 students across the province, along with 1,000 urgent-aid bursaries of $500. Said NSCC President Don Bureaux, “Thanks to the extraordinary generosity of The Joyce Foundation, we can provide more students with the financial support they need to access a college education, complete their studies at NSCC, and prepare for their next steps.” NSCC
