SAIT, Métis Education Foundation, Rupertsland Institute raise $1M to support Métis students


Southern Alberta Institute of Technology, the Métis Education Foundation, and the Rupertsland Institute have established the Métis Education Foundation Endowment Fund after co-fundraising $1M. The partners came together in 2019 with the goal of raising $950K in ten years to support Métis student success; due to the generosity of donors, this dream was achieved in less than half that time. “It’s been a very meaningful joint fundraising effort, with Rupertsland, to support SAIT Metis students and a remarkable achievement to witness,” said SAIT Associate Director of Development Anthony Salekin. “To reach a goal like this, which will provide significant student award funding in perpetuity, on time, would be reason to celebrate as it is. To do it with six years to spare is incredible and indicative of its importance.”
