RAQ Bursary

Dear RAQ Members,

As 2019 draws to a close, some RAQ members may be thinking about their charitable giving, so we thought it was timely to remind you of the RAQ Bursary.

The RAQ Bursary was established in 2016 through the generosity of RAQ members and, since then, has provided $2500 a year to students in need whose studies have been interrupted. We have heard annually from the recipients this fund and they have told us how much the money has assisted them.

Initially, the plan was to spend the money raised over a five year period after which the fund would have been expended. However, the bursary has provided such important support to students that we hope to continue the fund in perpetuity. To do that we need to raise approximately $2500 a year. This year we have received donations in the amount of $1061.00.

Please consider making a donation to the RAQ Bursary this year. Some of you may have given already this year and we thank you sincerely for that support. If you wish to make your donation online, click here.

Many thanks and we hope you enjoy the holidays with family and friends.
