Tim Hortons co-founder makes largest donation in Holland history

September 20, 2016

Holland College will create 25 new annual entrance bursaries thanks to a $2M donation by Tim Hortons co-founder Ron Joyce. CBC reports that the donation is the largest private gift ever made to the college, and that the funds will go into a permanently invested endowment to support the bursaries. Holland will reportedly recognize the gift by naming its new home for student academic services as The Joyce Family Centre for Academic Support. “The Joyce Family Foundation is building a legacy for the future by empowering students to develop into confident, skilled, independent contributors to society,” said Holland President Brian McMillan. “Their investment in Holland College will help to remove the financial, academic, social, and physical barriers facing students, allowing these bright and talented young people the opportunity to realize their dreams.” CBC | The Guardian (PE) | Holland
