Loyal and generous donors celebrated during 2016 Philanthropy Awards

Laurier's most loyal and generous donors were celebrated during the 2016 Philanthropy Awards. Themed “Innovative Laurier,” the event highlighted the important ways that donors have helped cement the university as a leader in post-secondary education.

“In order for Laurier to continue to make great strides in innovation, we must continue to invest in all manner of exploration," said Laurier President and Vice-Chancellor Max Blouw. "The generous donations made to Laurier by our remarkable community of donors allow us to do that.”

The event included the presentation of the 2016 Laurier Society Philanthropy Awards. Recipients Cindy Gardner (BBA ’98) and Trevor Gardner (BBA ’98) were recognized for their generous commitment and lasting dedication to their alma mater.

Brantford-based Millards Chartered Professional Accountants was also recognized. The company has been a loyal supporter of Laurier's Brantford campus for the past 17 years.
