Due to the generosity of Alumnus Andrew Molson, London House 2001-2 (pictured left), and the Molson Foundation, CAD400,000 has been awarded to the London Goodenough Association of Canada (LGAC), with the challenge to raise CAD400,000 in matching donations over three years in Canada. This means that every dollar given by our Canadian Alumni up to the value of CAD400,000 is now worth twice as much.
The Molson Challenge applies to donations made to the LGAC, a registered Canadian charity, designated for the refurbishment of Goodenough College, which is one of the LGAC’s main charitable purposes.
“Living at the College was one of the best experiences of my life. My outlook was transformed by being part of such an international academic community, in the heart of London.
“I have been impressed by the College’s refurbishment programme and the growth of its fundraising activities in recent years. I hope that the Molson Challenge will encourage many more Canadians to support this remarkable institution, which has strong connections with Canada, as well as ensuring the successful completion of the refurbishment.”
Over the past year the success of the Molson Challenge has assisted the College immensely with the refurbishment project. It has enabled the restoration and re-opening of London House in September 2014, on time and on budget. However, we still have work to do in order to fully restore our beautiful College buildings. With a further two years left to complete the Molson Challenge, there is no better time for Canadians to give towards College refurbishment.
