Contribute $10 per month to Project 50/50, a fundraising initiative where half of the proceeds will go to one lucky draw winner each month, and half will go to the Students’ Greatest Needs Scholarship. Split the cheque for a great cause!
Getting involved is easy. Project 50/50 is open to staff, students, alumni and the community. Fill out a pledge form at Human Resources for automatic payroll deductions*, or drop off $10 and a completed donor card at College Advancement before the last Friday of each month and you’ll automatically be entered in a public draw on the first Monday of every month. The more participants the bigger the pot so encourage others to get involved!
The Students’ Greatest Needs Scholarship addresses high-need areas identified on an annual basis. Sign up for Project 50/50 - you’ll support a great cause, and have a chance to win each month.
Please note, donations to this project are not eligible for charitable tax receipts due to CRA regulations. For a complete list of rules, please visit this page .
*Payroll deductions are available for regular part time and full time employees of MHC; contact Human Resources for more information.

Congratulations to Pam Hole who is $1,020 richer, thanks to MHC's Project 50/50.
"I’m so excited to have been drawn the winner of Project 50/50. It’s such an easy way to contribute to something that benefits the students. My day-to-day job doesn’t afford me a lot of opportunities to interact with the students, so it feels good to know that a small contribution each month can really make a difference to a student that needs help," explains the manager of financial services.
With her 25th anniversary on the horizon, Pam says the extra money will help fund an extra special trip to celebrate this milestone.
