APEGA FOUNDATION ANNOUNCEMENT

Dear APEGA Foundation Members and Friends, Effective immediately, we will be winding down operations and ultimately shutting down by December 31st, 2019. We want to thank the community for their support of the APEGA Foundation over the years and we hope to continue to support engineering and geoscience initiatives through our endowments for years to come. A big thank you to our donors. With your help, we have been able to inspire the next generation of dreamers and problem solvers by providing financial assistance to students in both engineering and geosciences. We will still be accepting donations and be providing tax receipts until December 31st, 2019. At the end of the year, we will be designating all remaining funds to postsecondary institutions in Alberta, hoping to provide student support in perpetuity. Thank you for your continued support over the years. Regards, Jim Gilliland, Ph.D., P.Eng., FEC, FGC(Hon.) APEGA Foundation President
