2021 Senior Class Gift

After years of fundraising and planning, Brock opened its doors to the first class in September 1964 and has continued to evolve ever since. Each year, the senior class comes together in the same spirit as Brock’s founders to leave their mark on the institution and help Badgers who follow in their footsteps through their Senior Class Gift.

The Class of 2021 Cares

This year, the Class of 2021 will be collecting donations for the Yosif Al-Hasnawi Memorial Bursary.

In December 2017, Yosif Al-Hasnawi was fatally shot while intervening on behalf of a stranger being accosted on the street in Hamilton, Ontario. He was an exceptional young man with aspirations of becoming a doctor.

His story has been an inspiration to the community and has sparked conversations promoting racial justice and equity on campus. Yosif would have graduated this June as part of the Class of 2021.

Leave your Mark

Commemorate your Brock experience with a contribution to the memorial bursary that has been set up in Yosif’s honour. In recognition of your graduating year, the class of 2021 can leave their mark by making a gift of $20.21

Through a gift to the Yosif Al-Hasnawi Memorial Bursary, you can help ensure Yosif’s memory lives on and that his story can continue to inspire the same kind of selflessness in others.

The Yosif Al-Hasnawi Memorial Bursary provides financial aid for students who may not otherwise be able to continue their education at Brock University without support. This bursary will help ensure students worry less about their financial obligations and let them focus on learning, growing and maturing into Brock graduates instead.

To make a gift, follow the link below and choose the “Yosif Al-Hasnawi Memorial Bursary” from the drop-down menu.

Every contribution makes an impact when we come together.

Did you know?

Nearly every aspect of your University experience has been touched by the generosity of a Brock donor and graduate. From the halls you walked through, the classrooms you learned in, to the study spaces, benches, facilities, and equipment you used (and so much more), a donor helped make these opportunities possible.

To this day, our graduates continue to give back to their alma mater through the donation of their time and money. Thank you for joining them in creating an enhanced student experience for future Badgers.
