How can you help?

George Brown College is actively preparing the future frontline workers of tomorrow. The college has always provided hands-on experience for the real world. That world is changing, and our students are working hard to meet its increasing demands so they can join the frontline workers our city and country need.

But during these difficult times, our students in the field of healthcare, construction and other frontline areas are struggling financially. Many have lost their part-time jobs, have families to support, and are struggling to cover costs for their tuition and essential needs.

The George Brown College Foundation aims to raise enough funds to create at least 40 scholarships, ranging between $500-$1,000 each, for our future frontline workers for the Fall.  Students who show dedication to their field of study, community involvement and demonstrate financial need will qualify. 

With your kind gift, we can make the education dreams of our future frontline workers a reality and ensure they take their place serving at the forefront of our communities.

"When I realized the pandemic would interrupt my business so harshly, I decided to make the most of the time and skills I have to create The Sewing Army online. There’s no greater honour than to serve and I’m proud of the efforts of each person in our 3,700 volunteer group. Not only could we help provide or our frontline workers in need, but The Sewing Army community helped many of us emotionally to handle the uncertainty of our new reality. I’m grateful for the skills I learned at GBC, which have been applied in so many ways to the success of The Sewing Army."
