The South Asian Business Association of BC (SABA) recently announced the proceeds from their 2014 charity golf tournament in the form of a $10,000 cheque to Kwantlen Polytechnic University (KPU).

The funds complete the third scholarship endowment fund established by SABA, each of which fund a $1,000 student award in perpetuity.

The two previous endowments, created by $20,000 donations, fund an annual entrepreneurial scholarship for a KPU business student, and a scholarship for a student in the university’s international training program for nurses.

SABA has committed to raising $100,000 in endowed funds to support student success at KPU.

“Through our partnership with KPU, SABA is proud to support students in the community to pursue post-secondary education. These endowment funds will forever be available to students who are making a difference in the world,” said M S Dhaliwal, president of SABA – an organization that provides a premier platform for B.C. businesses to discuss issues, opportunities and policies.

“SABA is a strong organization with community-minded members who recognize the value of education, and their support has a tremendous impact on the success of our current students. That support will continue into the future through their endowed scholarships,” added Gordon Lee, KPU’s vice-president of finance and administration.
