Sharing the Wealth

By Suzanne Robicheau | spring 2016

The non-profit landscape shifted at Saint Mary’s University’s One World Alumni Awards Gala during Homecoming 2015 with a remarkable display of giving by Brigadoon, a non-profit camp facility for children, youth, and families living with a chronic illness, chronic conditions, or special needs. When called upon to receive the top award of $10,000, Brigadoon’s founder David McKeage BComm’91 announced the decision to share his organization’s winnings with the two runners-up: McPhee Centre for Creative Learning and Peaceful Schools International.

“This generosity has opened a new world of opportunities to work together,” says Saint Mary’s alumna Karn Nichols MBA’09, Board Chair for the MacPhee Centre for Creative Learning. “I’d have greater hope for the world if there were more organizations like Brigadoon.”

Campus Notes: “I give because I believe in Saint Mary’s University.”
