CIES Receives Committee of 10,000 U of C Grant

The Committee of 10,000 collects a small levy from the 27,000 undergraduate students of the University of Calgary to give to charitable causes throughout the city of Calgary. The Committee of 10,000, comprised of students, gives away approximately $19,000 annually, with up to $5,000 per group. The intention of the committee is to build relations with the community outside of the university.

CIES submitted an application to the Committee for the purpose of an Information Technology upgrade and was awarded a funding package for their efforts. Below are CIES executive director Dr. Sally Zhao and Drop in ESL and Volunteer Manager Melissa McKinnon (front and centre), along with members of the Committee of 10,000. Great job guys and keep up the great work!
