This bursary fund was created by the Rockin Stinkbugs in honor of Bruce Fairbairn. With various dance fundraisers and donations from Judy Glover, the capital investment for this fund is approximately $17,000.00. This fund now sits within the Hornby Island Community Fund, adding to that capital base. This interest from the Community Fund allows the distribution of a $500 scholarship to a Hornby community member of any age attending an accredited post secondary institution in BC.
This bursary fund was created by donations from island members in memory of loved ones who were deceased. It has accumulated approximately $2200 over the years and since the interest generated is very small, there have been no bursaries distributed to this point.
This bursary fund was created in 2003 by a Denman Island Resident who wanted to support musical projects on both Hornby and Denman Islands, especially activities that would integrate both islands and/or intergenerational activities. Both the Community School on Denman and Hornby in conjunction with the Denman Island United Church, oversee the fund and the distribution of the interest from that fund.
This scholarship was created through the generosity of the Seabreeze Bishop Family and offers an annual $2000 scholarship to a deserving Hornby graduate. The scholarship recipient decision is made jointly by the Hornby Island Bursary Committee and the Vanier Bursary Committee.
