The Bursary Fund (Double Your Money!)

Mindcamp Mindcamp 2016

Bursary Fund

Good news! We have an anonymous donor…

…who’s willing to match the first $1,000 of donations that come in between now and August 1. So every dollar you give to the Bursary Fund will be worth $2 (unless you give a US$ in which case it will be worth $2.60)!

This year we need the Bursary Fund more than ever. Mindcamp has expanded from 4 to 5 days, and this year too the YMCA raised their fees. This means that, for Canadian registrants, the fee went up about 25% (Americans were luckier).

Meanwhile, we continue to reach out to people whom we know will be an asset to Mindcamp for all, but who may have little disposable income. The Bursary Fund helps us increase our social and economic diversity, and an increase in diversity is an increase in value for everyone.

As of this moment, we’ve raised just 66% of our goal of $3,000 for the Bursary Fund this year. Please consider improving that percentage. Even $25 will help. And even if you have given, consider giving a little more.
