Investing in education is an investment in our community — giving students access to the educational resources they need to be successful today, within their studies, upon graduation and throughout their lives.
We invite you to inspire future generations of students by leaving a lasting legacy gift to Mount Royal.
Although the students who will benefit from your generosity may never know you personally — or you them — the profound impact you will make on their lives is both priceless and eternal.
“Education is important, and the financial strain on students can be significant.
I now know that we are helping other students achieve their goals.”
- George Lightbound, creator fo the Cheryl Lightbound Memorial Scholarship and legacy gift donor
