2015 CarCareerBC Education Grants – Cheque Presentations
Through its bursary program, CarCareerBC, the New Car Dealers Foundation of BC has taken a leadership role with youth entering the automotive field. The 2015 Grants were recently awarded, and nearly $20,000 was offered to individuals throughout British Columbia. The grants were issued with the intent to assist with post-secondary education and training.
It would not be possible to award these grants without the major leadership contribution from Manse Binkley and Harmony Honda, Marnie Carter and the Carter Auto Family, Christian Chia and the OpenRoad Auto Group, and Jim Pattison. The financial donations allowed the New Car Dealers of BC to establish an endowment fund. Interest income from the endowment fund is given out on an annual basis through the Foundation’s CarCareerBC Grant program.
In addition to the CarCareerBC Education Grants, funding is also provided through grants established with Georgian College, Vancouver Island University, and BCIT.
