TWU receives $4 Million gift towards scholarships and diabetes research

On December 5, Trinity Western University received an estate endowment totaling $4 Million in part to create two endowed student scholarships, and advance diabetes research. President, Jonathan S. Raymond signed the final estate documents designating the gift to TWU.

“We rejoice in this significant gift to the University. The endowed scholarships established through this generous initiative will support wonderful, worthy students for many decades to come and beyond,” said Raymond. “The funds will also support research on diabetes that is going on in the University’s laboratories. Such a significant gift is a strong vote of confidence in the students and faculty of this remarkable university. We are pleased and blessed.”

The two endowed scholarships will provide an opportunity for one undergraduate and one graduate student with financial need, in any field of study, to attend TWU. The annual proceeds of the endowment will support groundbreaking diabetes research that has vital impact on the health of Canadians.

The donor, who employed two alumni, supported TWU’s vision to develop people of high competence and exemplary character who distinguish themselves as exceptional leaders in the marketplaces of life. A plaque recognizing the endowment will be placed in the newly expanded Neufeld Science Centre.
