With $15.2 million of the $16 million goal raised, พรพรสำฦต’s Going Beyond campaign has reached the 95 per cent mark, thanks to the generosity of more than 800 donors throughout the province. This milestone is already resonating at campuses throughout New Brunswick, as learners access barrier-breaking technology, bursaries, and skills training.

“Response to the Going Beyond campaign has been phenomenal and many of the dollars raised have already gone to work, providing direct financial assistance in the form of scholarships and bursaries to students,” said Mary Butler, President and CEO of พรพรสำฦต. “As we continue towards the finish line, we’re focusing on raising additional funds to create future-forward learning spaces with the most up-to-date, innovative tools and technology to give our students a world-class educational experience.” The impact of gifts from generous partners is already benefitting learners, including:
