Holiday Matching Campaign

Create Opportunity for Students in the GTA

and have DOUBLE the IMPACT! 

Two generous donors have committed to match all donations to Merit, up to $55,000, until December 31, 2023



"Being a merit award recipient means that I am able to pursue my education in Mechatronics Engineering at a top university.

Merit’s financial support enables me to access a much higher level of the real-world engineering experiences I had been able to gain through my participation in high school robotics.


As a merit LoT recipient, I am supported with mentors and a wide network to help guide me throughout my career pursuit.


I am both excited and grateful to be awarded the opportunity to grow into a leader and extend this mentorship to my younger peers interested in the STEM fields and beyond!

Thank you very much.

Please give so others like me can have a Merit opportunity."

“In 2019 I was one of three Leader of Tomorrow recipients selected to receive $5,000 from Merit towards tuition. Back then this number was unimaginable to me. To put it into perspective, my family of three had a total income of $40,000 a year and here I was getting $5,000 just for me, and for my education.

I can’t describe to you the feeling of having a financial burden like that lifted. It was like winning the lottery. But I can tell you that you don’t realize you haven’t really taken a deep breath, until the day you finally do.


Please help others like me have a Merit Opportunity.”


The Perfect Tribute Gift: The Gift of Education

The holiday season is fast approaching and you may be looking for a unique gift for someone on your list. Or a unique way to honour a birthday or special occasion. Why not give the gift of education for a student in the GTA? 

You can send an ecard to let them know they are helping create opportunity!  And now is the perfect time because your gift will be doubled! Thanks to the generosity of two anonymous donors we can match every dollar donated up to $55,000, during the month of December.

Help us reach our goal and create $110,000 for Merit Award Bursaries to help students pursue college or university.
