A Dream from the Past

Leads to the Advancement of the Future Speaking from first-hand experience, Anne Wright, a leading philanthropist and new member of Trent University’s Board of Governors, knows of the impact a post-secondary education can have on one’s life. In fact, it is a lesson that she was taught in early childhood by her mother, Mary J. Kennedy. Always a strong advocate for a university education, Mary made it clear that “there was absolutely no question” that her daughter would go to university. It was an experience that, unfortunately, Mary herself missed out on due to family financial constraints. According to her daughter, not being able to pursue further studies after high school was something Mary “regretted her entire life.”

Anne Wright

“She desperately wanted to go,” Anne recalls, explaining that her mother even returned to grade 13 for a second year just to take the courses she hadn’t yet experienced in hopes that, with the extra time, her family could have sent her on to pursue her dreams at university. Due to the Depression, however, that dream never became a reality.

“I have had a lot of good things in my life, a lot of advantages – my education has allowed me to go places and do things, and I am happy to be able to give something back,” says Anne, who worked as a chartered accountant in Toronto following the completion of an arts degree in English and French at the University of Western Ontario in London.

“Education leads to a better quality of life. The experience exposes people to a broader world – to concepts and cultures they may not have had access to before.”

Now, through the creation of a bursary named in memory of her mother, Anne and her husband, Larry, have taken a significant step towards ensuring that other students don’t miss out on the same experience. The Mary J. Kennedy Bursary will provide assistance for a Trent undergraduate student who is in financial need. It will be awarded for the first time in the 2008/2009 academic year. “This bursary would make her so happy,” says Anne. “It would touch her – knowing we were able to do something to help students in the pursuit of their dreams.”

Learning to Make a World of Difference

Helping others is another lesson Anne learned from her mother and it is a lesson she has truly taken to heart in her career and in her philanthropic work.

Anne is a leader who has volunteered as the chair of many committees and boards of organizations such as the Canadian Diabetes Association and Lakeridge Health. She believes strongly that a volunteer’s contribution of time and energy is just as important as a monetary donation. According to Anne, it is also important to be passionate about the work in which you become involved. So when she was offered the chance to apply her experience and expertise to the Advancement Committee and Board of Governors at Trent University, Anne jumped at the opportunity. “I was very intrigued with the idea right off the bat,” she recalls. Looking to the future, Anne is excited about applying her skills to the realm of education. For her, it represents an opportunity not only to be involved in an area that held special significance for her mother, but also to contribute to an experience that will shape the lives of so many young people for years to come.

Dear Friends and Generous Donors, At Trent University, we pride ourselves on the strength of our traditions, our reputation for excellence in teaching and research, and our dedication to providing an inclusive environment for our students, faculty, staff and alumni. We also recognize the important role donors play in the life of this institution – sparking Trent innovation and success through support for research projects, student awards and bursaries, and moving us forward on a path towards a bright future. To all our donors, we thank you for helping to solidify our position as a world-class post-secondary institution. In 2006, Trent participated for the first-time in the National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE) which surveyed over one million students in North America about their university experiences. In each of the five benchmarks of student engagement set in the survey, Trent outperformed many of our provincial and national counterparts. Results indicated that 85 per cent of first year students felt the quality of their entire educational experience at Trent was good or excellent, versus 79 per cent for the Ontario average. This quality indicator was amplified by upper year students, as 91 per cent of the 2006 graduating class stated they had a good or excellent educational experience, versus the 78 per cent at other Ontario Universities. In addition, when our graduating students were asked “if you could do it all over again at Trent, would you?” a resounding 88 per cent of Trent’s class of 2006 said yes - the highest satisfaction level of all Ontario Universities. Your investments in Trent University’s mission have been essential to the quality Trent experience borne out in these results. We value our students having consistent and meaningful contact with tenured professors and creating a sense of community on the Trent campus. As we look towards our 50th anniversary in 2014, we hope you will continue your engagement with Trent and assist us in our continuing pursuit of excellence. On behalf of the students, faculty and staff at Trent University, thank you, again, for your support. Sincerely,

Bonnie M. Patterson

A History that Guides Us – A Future that Will Sustain Us These are exciting times for Trent University. As the institution looks forward towards its 50th anniversary, we are at a pivotal point in defining our preferred future – a vision of the University at 2014.

Dianne Lister

LL.B., CFRE Vice-President External Relations and Advancement

As a Trent alumna, I began my studies when the University was in its seventh year, so I understand the deep and significant history of Trent’s beginnings – and I am energized by the bright future that lies ahead for this exceptional institution. Since my return to Trent in early 2006 as the vice-president of External Relations and Advancement, I have found it exhilarating to participate first-hand in laying the groundwork upon which our bold new Vision will be achieved.

the roadmap for Trent’s academic and administrative priorities, charting the course to our 50th anniversary. As an institution that took root from the seeds of philanthropy, our future will grow forth from those same origins.

Vision Statement: To develop a learning environment which ensures that the individual student is knowledgeable, thinks critically, is socially conscious

Crafted through an inclusive planning process involving students, faculty, staff, alumni and community members, our Vision is a new and dynamic expression of our Mission – it is forward-thinking while reflecting the hallmarks of the Trent environment: the centrality of the individual student, a rich environment for research, and an internationalized campus infused with engaged minds focused on success and the betterment of the world around us.

Central to our Vision is a Philanthropic Plan that ensures a successful future for Trent University, our students, faculty, alumni, and our community. This plan promotes the ongoing development of a culture of philanthropy at Trent.

In line with our Vision and tied to our distinct Mission, Strategic Directions 2014 is a pivotal document that defines

At the heart of the Philanthropic Plan is the Centres of Knowledge model. Far from being housed in mere bricks and

and is prepared to make a difference in society.

mortar, these virtual, interdisciplinary, and thematic Centres are a celebration of our academic excellence. Each Centre represents aspects of Trent’s preferred future – areas in which we have chosen to invest and grow. They also acknowledge our faculty and our intellectual asset base as the engine that fuels the success of our students and graduates. Five Centres of Knowledge will be launched over the course of the next several years and will be anchored in Trent’s new Strategic Research Plan. Designed to communicate our institution’s areas of strength to all stakeholders, the Centres of Knowledge will allow us to truly engage students, faculty, staff, alumni, members of the community, and donors in the life and future of Trent University. By investing in a menu of opportunities presented through the Centres of Knowledge model, Trent’s donors will truly make a world of difference. In my meetings with alumni, donors and friends of Trent, I have heard it said many times that Trent University is on the cusp of achieving great new things. As we look toward the future, we are guided by our history and traditions of excellence. I hope you will join me as we prepare for our 50th anniversary and beyond.

John de Pencier & David Moore:

Friends in Philanthropy In matching shirts and Trent ties, John de Pencier and David Moore sit amiably, side-byside, and describe a close to 30-year friendship that grew out of a connection with Trent University. As respected members of the Toronto business community in the late 1970s, the two knew of each other, but a close relationship didn’t blossom between them until their paths crossed as volunteers at Trent. Today, they look back on years of governance, philanthropy and networking on behalf of Trent with fondness. And, as ever, they remain eager proponents of what they view as a distinct university experience only available at Trent. John and David are volunteers of an exceptional kind. Between them, they have contributed more than 50 years of voluntarism to Trent. Through their own generous support they have inspired many others to give. Their names at Trent are synonymous with the very best sense of the spirit of philanthropy. The de Pencier Family Award and the Moore Family Award are strikingly similar in their quest to support students who demonstrate high academic standing and financial need. Both John and David hold an honorary doctor of laws degree from Trent University. Though neither gentleman is a Trent alumnus, something about the University attracted each of them in those early days – and, despite the passing of so many years, continues to do so. “There was a warmth about Trent,” said John. “You always got a warm, personal welcome. We had fun; it didn’t feel like work.” But work hard for Trent they did. From the time he received that first phone call asking to

support the ‘parent fund’ when his daughter Jan was attending Trent, John made a profound connection with the institution. Not only did he serve as chair of the Board of Governors from 1986 to 1991; he later chaired the Trent University Foundation which he helped to create “to encourage people to remember Trent in their estates.” He remains a director of the Foundation and an honorary governor of the Board to this day.

“There was a warmth about Trent,” said John. “You always got a warm, personal welcome. We had fun; it didn’t feel like work.” David, also an honorary governor, was asked to join the Board in 1982 and led the University to one of the most significant campaign successes in its history as chair of the “For Tomorrow Campaign” in 1989. The successful $25 million campaign – tied to Trent’s 25th anniversary – was a remarkable feat for a small university. What inspired individuals and corporations across the country to give to Trent was clearly a combination of the unique Trent story and the unwavering campaign leadership that David exemplified. But in the classic amity of good friends, he points to John as being pivotal to many of those large gifts. The two constantly push one another into the spotlight and, in between giving each other credit for significant donations and important ideas, they punctuate

the conversation with laughter and memories of long drives up Highway 115 on slick, wintry roads. With so many projects to recount, the good friends seem especially proud of the de Pencier Fund for Trent’s Nature Areas, initiated by John’s brother, Michael, in collaboration with David and honorary former Board member Jalynn Bennett. A tribute to John de Pencier’s years of service to Trent and his connection to the Board of the Nature Conservancy, the fund raised $100,000 for the creation of a nature trail on Trent’s 1,450 acre campus in Peterborough. In recalling this successful initiative on behalf of Trent, David reflects on Trent’s distinguishing factors, then and now. He mentions Trent presidents and Advancement Office staff, past and present, who provide leadership and inspire confidence – and he comes back to Trent’s trademark focus on the individual student. “One thing I have always been impressed with is the student/faculty interaction,” he said. “As you go talking to donors who may be approached by huge institutions, to be able to say that Trent students today are still taught by the professors in small classes and small seminars - even connecting with their professors outside the classroom – that really stands out.” John is retired from his position as senior vice-president of Reed Stenhouse. He was also North American director of Bankside Underwriting Agencies, Lloyds of London Company. David is past commissioner of the Ontario Securities Commission and retired vicepresident and director from McLeod, Young, Weir (now Scotia McLeod) in Toronto.

new endowed bursaries & awards


donors Make a World of Difference

in the Lives of Trent Students Board of Governors Scholarship Enables Jenna-Lynn Burns to Shine For Trent University student and Lindsay native Jenna-Lynn Burns, winning the 2005/06 Board of Governors Leadership Scholarship represented more than removing the financial barriers to her post-secondary education. It meant that she could continue following her passion – volunteering with non-profit agencies to develop youth leadership programs.

OTSS: Double the Impact of Your Donation Established by the Government of Ontario in 2005, the Ontario Trust for Student Support (OTSS) matches endowed donations on a dollar-fordollar basis to provide bursaries and awards to Ontario students.

“I really can’t tell you how much this scholarship means to me and to my family,” she explained. “What I am most grateful for is that this scholarship allows me to go to school without having to worry about finances; I am able to concentrate on my academics and I still have time to give back to my community, to work with youth, to initiate change.” Jenna-Lynn is preparing to enter her third year as a concurrent education student majoring in English literature and biology. “It is

because of this scholarship that I am able to attend university,” said Jenna-Lynn during her thank-you speech to Trent’s Board of Governors. “When someone cares enough to support a student, it’s not a waste of money – it’s an investment in the future of the community.” In addition to studying full-time at Trent, Jenna-Lynn volunteers with the Boys and Girls Club of Lindsay serving as chairperson for the Provincial Youth Council of Ontario (PYC), and sits on an advisory committee with the Ministry of Health to assist with strategic planning concerning health issues of children and youth. She is also working with the Boys and Girls Clubs of Canada to plan a large-scale national youth conference slated to take place in Alberta in November 2007. Reid Morden, chair of Trent University’s Board of Governors, believes his donations are making a profound difference, both to students and to society in general. “Creating scholarships is a tremendous way to support students who exemplify a passionate commitment to community service and global citizenship. As a donor, I find helping Trent students to shine during their university career is extremely rewarding.”

Morton Graduate Scholarship Opens New Doors for Trent Student When graduate student Chantal Fiola received her acceptance to Trent University’s Indigenous Studies Ph.D. program, she was excited about the opportunities she would have access to as part of the only doctoral program of its kind in Canada. Along with her acceptance came another piece of welcome news – as the recipient of an Ontario Graduate Scholarship, she had received the prestigious Morton Indigenous Studies Graduate Scholarship. Awarded as part of an OGS, this allowed her to receive $15,000 in funding. “There are many inhibiting factors to pursuing post-secondary education, not the least of which is the cost,” said Chantal, who started her Ph.D. at Trent in September 2006 and plans to graduate in 2010. “Some students cannot afford

to complete their undergraduate degree (as was my mother’s experience), never mind find funds to get them through graduate school…I do not come from a wealthy family and am grateful for the generosity of kind people, like the Mortons’, because without them I don’t know if I would be able to pursue my Ph.D.” David L. Morton, a Trent Board member and honorary degree recipient and the former president and CEO of Quaker Oats of Canada, and his wife, Professor Emerita Patricia Owens Morton, established the scholarship in 2003 with a generous donation of $100,000. The annual interest from this endowed gift is doubly matched by the Ontario Graduate Scholarship (OGS) program to create an annual $15,000 scholarship

in perpetuity. With their strong interest in Aboriginal culture and history, the Mortons’ created the scholarship specifically to support students of Aboriginal heritage in their pursuit of higher education. For Chantal, who originally hails from Ste. Genevieve, Manitoba, the scholarship represents the means through which she will have the opportunity to work with leading faculty researchers, community advocates, and Aboriginal elders in Canada’s leading Indigenous Studies Ph.D. program. Through her research at Trent, she is exploring the contributing factors to healthy relationships between Métis women and First Nations women in the Winnipeg area.

Varsity Swimmer Benefits from Aidan Lumley Bursary “It’s nice to know people notice your efforts because it’s hard to balance school and swimming,” said Sebastian.

Ontario Graduate Scholarship (OGS) The Ontario Graduate Scholarship (OGS) program is a wonderful opportunity to attract and support some of the brightest minds in the country, and to maximize the benefits of private sector donations. Each annual scholarship is $15,000. The Province of Ontario provides two-thirds of the funding required for OGS; the University must raise the remaining onethird. A minimum donation of $5,000 will fund one OGS. A donation of $125,000 endows one OGS in perpetuity.

Managing the rigours of varsity swimming and a heavy course load required student Sebastian Cosgrove to maintain a hectic pace during his first year at Trent. When Sebastian learned he was the inaugural recipient of the Aidan Lumley Bursary for Athletics, the news came as a welcome surprise.

Sebastian was humbled by the recognition and grateful for the bursary which was named in memory of Aidan Lumley, a thirdyear Trent student and star varsity swimmer who died tragically in 2005. Although he never met Aidan Lumley, after receiving the award, Sebastian spoke with his fellow team mates about him and learned how Aidan was always there for his fellow swimmers and renowned for his outgoing personality. Understanding Aidan’s legacy made the experience of being the bursary’s first recipient even more special

for Sebastian. “Aidan won’t be forgotten,” he said. A French major and concurrent education student, Sebastian’s drive and hard work continued into the summer months as he successfully earned a summer position with Air Canada. Hired as one of 122 flight attendants out of 6,000 who applied, Sebastian has a guaranteed job every summer while attending university until he chooses to accept a full-time position with Air Canada. Next year he will study in Nantes, France as part of Trent’s Study Abroad program. He looks forward to returning to Trent and the varsity swimming team in his third year.

Inaugural President’s River Reception Professor Barry Saville with Trent students


President Bonnie Patterson was delighted to host approximately 100 alumni, donors, volunteers, and friends at the inaugural President’s River Reception held at the height of Head of the Trent activities on September 30. The University’s Campaign for Balance & Excellence was highlighted at the reception. Another highlight was a special gift presentation made to Thomas Bata, a great Trent friend and donor for whom the Bata Library is named.

In the fall of 2006 we said goodbye to the bricks and mortar that housed The Commoner, a once lively and atmospheric student pub. The spirit of The Commoner now lives on through the newly established Commoner Bursary, which will help students in financial need achieve their potential as our leaders of tomorrow. Our goal is to build the Commoner Bursary Fund to a $50,000 endowment. With your help and with the assistance of the OTSS matching program, this goal is within reach. Trent by Numbers

Logan Estate Creates Legacy of Learning

Ian & Lorraine Logan

“As human beings we are born to succeed, not to fail. Formulate a plan and make it your goal. With determination, enthusiasm and discipline, success is sure to follow.”

Achieving success through hard work and dedication is a mantra Lorraine Logan and her late husband, Ian, lived by. It is also the mantra Lorraine hopes will be engrained in the character of the future graduate students who benefit from the financial award she and her husband set up in his will.

Lorraine smiled and said, “I wish he was here to tell you himself”, before explaining that Ian was very patriotic and wanted to promote a Canadian perspective. Having completed a Ph.D. and nearly three master’s degrees, Ian was also a strong advocate for graduate school.

The Ian and Lorraine Logan Graduate Award, available to students for the first time this fall, will be presented to a graduate student in Canadian Studies interested in forward-looking, but not restrictive, public policy research. The award will also be given on the basis of financial need and an excellent academic record.

Robert Ian Logan was born in 1938 in Lindsay, Ontario to a family who strongly believed in the importance of education. In fact, when he and Lorraine met in 1992 in Edmonton while working for the federal government, he was learning French. Looking for someone to practice his new skill with, Ian was introduced to Lorraine who, with her French heritage, was the obvious choice. In the end, however, according to Lorraine it was Ian who taught her the most: “Ian had more

When asked why Ian felt so strongly about supporting a student pursuing a graduate degree in Canadian Studies,

confidence in me than I had in myself. And I am not the only person he did that for – he encouraged so many people. I called him my walking encyclopedia – he was knowledgeable in so many areas and he never made you feel silly for asking questions.” Ian and Lorraine’s connection to Trent began in 2005 when they moved to Peterborough to be closer to family and doctors in Toronto. Despite his battle with cancer, Ian spent every afternoon that he was feeling well at the Bata Library, researching his family history. Always interested in leaving a legacy in his will to support education, Ian and Lorraine made the decision to invest in the University’s future students. As a result, they have ensured that Ian’s passion for learning will live on at Trent.

Margery J. Warren Estate Puts Trent in Bloom

Community Members Enjoy Lunch with Trent Experts

On September 20, 2006, Trent University celebrated the official opening of the Margery J. Warren Garden. Nestled at the bottom of a hill on the East Bank of Trent University overlooking the magnificent Otonabee River, the garden was designed to create a space that is as pleasing to view from above as it is to walk through at any time of the year.

held on May 17, 2007 at the Holiday Inn Peterborough

Throughout the garden there are a series of garden courts in a variety of sizes, which are surrounded by plants, trees, and flowers selected for their seasonal interest. This element ensures that the garden can be enjoyed all year round. With its location close to the Rotary Greenway Trail, the Warren Garden creates an open and inviting space for Trent faculty, staff and students as well as the larger Peterborough community. The garden was created through the estate of Margery J. Warren, an early childhood educator, homemaker, and long time supporter of a number of research and education focused charities. The estate has also provided money to be used towards developing an endowment fund that will ensure that the Warren Garden is well maintained for years to come. A plaque commemorating this generous gift from the Warren estate is placed at the base of a one-of-a-kind structure featured in the garden and designed by renowned Canadian sculpture artists Ron and Lynda Baird.

Over 130 members of the community attended the inaugural Inside Trent: Lunch with the Experts event Waterfront. At the event, three experts from Trent, two professors and one undergraduate student, discussed the topic of “Climate Change: A New Reality.” The experts were: Dr. Chris Furgal, a professor of the Indigenous Studies Department and the Environmental and Resource Studies program at Trent and the co-lead author of the International Arctic Science Committee-directed “Arctic Climate Impact Assessment”; Dr. Christine FreemanRoth, a philosophy professor who is well-versed on the environmental ethics of climate change; and Robert Tookoome, an Inuit student who has seen first-hand the alarming consequences of climate change in Canada’s north. Professor emeritus and former Peterborough MP The Honourable Peter Adams emceed the event, which was sponsored by the Trent University Legacy Society.

David Suzuki Comes to Trent World renowned geneticist, environmentalist, academic and broadcaster, Dr. David Suzuki came to Trent on January 19, 2007 as the speaker for the fifth annual Tapscott-Lopes Business and Society Lecture. Dr. Suzuki delivered his presentation, entitled “The Challenge of the 21st Century: Finding Our Place on Earth”, to a captivated audience of 600 Trent students, faculty, staff, and members of the Peterborough community. Dr. Suzuki is also a Trent donor, having established the Setsu Suzuki Bursary in his mother’s memory in 1985.


The annual Tapscott-Lopes Business and Society Lecture is funded by internationally-renowned business strategist and Trent University alumnus Don Tapscott and his wife, communications expert and former member of Trent’s Board of Governors, Ana Lopes. The fund was established to bring prominent speakers to the Trent University community.

David Morrison Lecture Series in International Development Created Providing future Trent students with exciting opportunities to meet and learn from renowned speakers in the international development field.

Invested in Trent: Why One Trent Staff Member Supports the Annual Fund Professors David Morrison & Alena Heitlinger

Through a generous gift of $100,000, two Trent University professors have set up a new endowed lectureship, which will provide future Trent students with exciting opportunities to meet and learn from renowned speakers in the international development field. The David Morrison Lecture Series in International Development, created by Professors David Morrison and Alena Heitlinger, will provide students, faculty and members of the Peterborough community with exceptional access to leading scholars and people engaged in policy and practical work in the field of international development. As an endowment, the lectureship series will continue in perpetuity and provide new learning experiences for Trent students and faculty. “Alena and I see the creation of the endowed lectureship as a platform for further recognizing

the academic excellence of the International Development Studies Department which, for the past 30 years, has attracted wonderful students to Trent and achieved great distinction in teaching and research,” says David, who retired this year after 40 years of service to the

addition to authoring several publications, he has served in a variety of teaching and administrative leadership roles in the University, including ten years as Dean of Arts and Science. As director of the Trent International Program from 1996 to 2001, he led a successful effort to put Trent’s international scholarship program on a self-funded basis and to increase greatly the number of international students enrolled in the University. He received a Trent University Eminent Service Award in 2007.

“The lecture series will bring outstanding speakers to Trent each year from various parts of the world, including developing countries.”

Dr. Alena Heitlinger, David’s wife of 30 years, teaches in Trent’s Sociology Department. A widelypublished scholar, she was the recipient of the Trent University Distinguished Research Award in 1999-2000. Her work has explored feminist, demographic, health, employment, child care, migration and ethnic issues in Central and Eastern Europe, Canada, Britain and Australia.

New Incentive for Donors Elimination of Capital Tax Gains Tax on Gifts of Stocks and Securities Did you know that in its May 2, 2006 budget, the federal government announced that it was eliminating the capital gains tax on gifts of appreciated securities to charities? This new legislative provision makes gifts of appreciated securities an even more attractive option for all donors. If you are considering a donation to Trent University and you own publicly listed securities – stocks, bonds, mutual fund units or shares – that have appreciated in value, you may want to consider transferring these directly to the University, rather than cashing them in to make a donation.

“Trent fosters an attitude of questioning and intellectual open-mindedness, and encourages students to seek different truths,” Trent’s staff contingent is made up of exceptional people who want to make a difference in the world, each in their own unique way. For Sybil Nunn, administrative secretary in the Office of the President and a 20-year veteran employee of the University, the Annual Fund is one of many ways she supports the activities most important to her. “Trent fosters an attitude of questioning and intellectual open-mindedness, and encourages students to seek different truths,” she explained, adding humorously, “Having the ability to question is important, because if you don’t learn to think for yourself, by the time you get to my age, you’ll just become a widget.” The positive, nurturing and inquisitive environment that infuses Trent is what motivates Sybil to give to the Annual Fund, a critical pool of funds that are raised each year to enhance the student experience at Trent. Specifically, the Annual Fund subsidizes many Universitywide needs, including scholarships, bursaries and awards for students, department improvements, library and athletics resources, student employment, and campus services. Without the generosity of Trent staff and faculty members through charitable donations to the Annual Fund, many of these additional student resources might not be possible. “We are all inundated with various charitable requests. I have several charities to which I contribute on a monthly basis,” Sybil said, noting that she prefers to give monthly. “I have a deep fondness for Trent. It is beautiful and it is such a super place to work. I’m happy to help in my own small way.”

Why? If you cash in these securities, you have to include 50 per cent of the capital gain (how much they’ve increased in value) in your income for the year. If you donate the securities directly to the University, you do not include any of the capital gain in your income, and you still benefit from the tax receipt for your gift. For more information about making a gift through your will, life insurance, trust, or gifts of securities, please contact Sherry Booth in the Advancement Office at Trent University, (705) 748-1011 x7593.

How to Raise a Philanthropist:

Meet the Meyer-Larose Family “As a family, we realize there are so many local, national and international issues that need support. Which ones do we help?” That was the guiding question Winston Meyer and his family set out to answer when they decided in 2006 to collectively donate $25,000 to two worthy causes. Long-time supporters of many educational and community organizations, including Trent University, Winston Meyer and MarieClaude Larose felt the time was right to involve their two sons, William, 12, and Samuel, 14, in the decision-making process of charitable giving. When the boys were younger, Winston, a Trent alumnus, and Marie-Claude travelled with them extensively to raise their awareness about global issues. “The kids have seen many different socio-economic conditions, and learned that people can still be happy in diverse living standards,” explained Winston. As parents, it was critical to Winston and Marie-Claude that their sons link this growing awareness to a sense of personal responsibility and the value of becoming a contributing member of society. This blossomed into the idea of a family donation, so they set out a clear process

that enabled all four of them to contribute equally to the final decision. Individual family members would seek out a funding proposal from an organization of their choice and then conduct a blind vote to select which two projects would each receive $25,000. Each project scored points based upon the rankings it received from each ballot. Both parents and the boys came up with an interesting range of proposals for everyone’s consideration, including one from Trent to set up an endowed family award to support a graduate student in applied science. This fund qualified for matching support through the OTSS program, creating an opportunity to double the amount of the award. When the Meyer-Larose family toured Trent as part of their philanthropic research, they met Ph.D. student Brenna McLeod who is studying recovery strategies for the highly threatened North Atlantic Right Whale. “After she described her research, the kids asked lots of questions,” Winston recalled. “What Brenna was doing made sense to them. They could see this was a solution to a big problem.” As the family began to evaluate the four proposals, the two boys found the experience stressful because every project had merit. “The problem was not saying yes, for the kids it was how to say no,” Winston noted. A key moment during their deliberations came when the kids asked what would happen if they did not fund these projects. The discussion that followed enabled the family to contextualize the

impact of their gift, and the boys decided that they wanted to fund the project that would fail without their support. Once all the projects had been reviewed, the vote was held late one Saturday evening. When the balloting was over, Trent received three first place votes and one second place vote, ensuring it would be one of the chosen projects.

values supporting endowments that advance research at Trent. “Research is the validation of a university and is the by-product of a successful educational experience,” he stated. “I want Trent to evolve into a very strong economic entity. You can only do that by putting money in the savings account.”

Winston sees endowment gifts offering key benefits to both his family and society. “The kids realized that Trent was one of only “Endowed giving provides permanent solutions.

This passion for teaching the importance of philanthropy both to their own children and to future generations reflects the truly unique quality of the Meyer-Larose family. This value, shared by many Trent donors, nurtures the culture of philanthropy that is developing around the University in order to make a world of difference.

POA Foundation Creates New Opportunities for Aboriginal Students Aditya Jha, a leading Canadian IT entrepreneur and chairman of the POA Educational Foundation, has created a $100,000 endowment to support bursaries and awards for Indigenous Studies students as well as a longer-term partnership between the University and the POA Educational Foundation to collaborate on several projects to nurture entrepreneurship among Canada’s Aboriginal population. The $100,000 endowment has been created through a donation made by the POA Educational Foundation and matched dollar-for-dollar by the provincial government’s Ontario Trust for Student Support (OTSS) program. The gifts will be placed in an endowment and the annual distribution from the funds will be used to support both the Aditya Jha Indigenous Studies Awards and the Aditya Jha Indigenous Studies Bursaries, which will first be made available to Trent students in 2008-2009. Preference for these awards and bursaries will be given to applicants of Aboriginal heritage.

Students working through the Trent Centre for Community Based Education will also be involved in planning and running Project Beyshick for the next three years.

Trent University has also agreed to collaborate with Mr. Jha on several initiatives designed to promote and encourage entrepreneurship among Canada’s Aboriginal population. These initiatives include working with the POA Educational Foundation on its groundbreaking Project Beyshick, which


Another product of the new partnership between Trent University and the POA Educational Foundation is the creation of a workshop or seminar on Indigenous issues, hosted by the department of Indigenous Studies and targeted at executive business leaders. It is proposed that this event would be held in conjunction with Trent’s annual Elders’ Conference.
