The the Calgary Numismatic Society has raised a scholarship fund for students studying numismatics at the University of Calgary. Impressive!
Students studying numismatics at the University of Calgary will soon benefit from the volunteer commitment of the Calgary Numismatic Society (CNS).
The Calgary club has created a $50,000 scholarship endowment at the university that is designed
to make a significant long-term numismatic contribution within the community, says CNS president Tom Woznow.
Knowing that the University of Calgary has the Nickel Galleries museum with large numismatic holdings, we wanted to enhance the study opportunities by providing funding that could be paid out in a bursary, yearly, to a student that might be studying and working within the field of numismatics.
The $50,000 donation is the result of CNS members volunteering their time at local casinos, raising funds for the promotion and appreciation of numismatics.
The funds were raised by club members that work at casinos for two full days and two full nights, which is no small task and requires 22 volunteers from our club to fill all the positions for the two days and nights, Woznow explains.
The CNS does this every 18 months, as the CNS is on an 18-month funding rotation with the Alberta Gaming Liquor Control Board.
The donation to the University of Calgary was made at a recent club meeting. Surrounded by club members, Woznow presented the donation to university representative Shannon Katusa.
