TRU alumni kickstart $1M endowment campaign for Williams Lake students


At Thompson Rivers University, alumni Mark and Sally Nairn have kickstarted a campaign to establish a $1M endowment for students in Williams Lake. The Williams Lake Endowed Fund will ensure that student supports, such as scholarships, awards, and bursaries, receive long-term financial sustainability. “There are a lot of very good students in this town who have great capabilities and are smart people — they just don’t have the finances to go to university and it’s a real shame,” said Mark Nairn. “The reason we picked $1 million as our goal is that it should generate about $40,000 a year that will be used for bursaries to support students in need coming to our campus.”
