Georgian College’s Power of Education Fundraising Campaign  recently closed and raised in excess of its $40-million goal.

At the close of the campaign, Georgian raised more than $54-million to support capital projects and scholarships to benefit students at all seven campuses including the Muskoka location. The campaign was supported by alumni, students and friends, corporations and foundations, as well as through government investment at the municipal, regional, provincial and federal levels.

The largest campaign gift came from those with a direct stake in the outcome – the students.  Federal funding from the Post-Secondary Institutions Strategic Investment Fund was matched by commitments of $5 million respectively made by the County of Simcoe and the City of Barrie
