The Development Team at Redeemer is pleased to announce that thanks to hundreds of donors more than $500,000 has been raised to leverage an additional half-million in funds to support Redeemer students. The funds have provided Redeemer with the means to support over 560 students with financial aid including scholarships, bursaries, loans and on-campus work placement. In the fall of 2008, a group of donors stepped forward and agreed to match contributions up to $500,000 received by April 30, 2009 towards the Support Our Students campaign. On May 4 the Development Team was happy to report that the goal was exceeded. This brings the campaign total to $2.7-million since it commenced in 2006. Redeemer is committed to reducing student costs by providing as much financial aid as possible. Financial aid assists students by making Redeemer an affordable option, minimizing the amount of outside employment required to fund their education, and reducing their debt-load upon graduation. A special thank you goes out to the more than 600 donors who have contributed to the campaign.
