Exciting News! New Goal!

April 26, 2019

Thank you for your generosity in supporting the Jan Wiebe Memorial Fund. Thanks to you, we have surpassed our initial goal of $5,000 within days of the campaign launch.  While this is wonderful news, it comes as no surprise as so many wish to honor Jan’s legacy. With a couple of weeks left, we have raised our goal to $10,000. The larger that Jan’s fund is, the more awards that can be made available to SCI students. Please continue to share the campaign and help us reach our new goal!
