McCains make lasting impact

October 3, 2011

When Margaret and the late Wallace McCain chose to donate $100,000 almost ten years ago to Western's endowment fund, they may not have realized how much of an impact it would make in less than a decade.

The income generated by the McCain’s Western endowment, together with the 2:1 Ontario Graduate Scholarship match, has provided more than $100,000 to graduate students at Western – exceeding the amount originally endowed.

Nine graduate students have benefitted since the first recipient was chosen in 2002-2003. The McCain’s sons, Michael and Scott, say they are amazed that their parents’ donation has helped so many students in a significant way in such a short time.

“Our parents had always managed their money well,” says Scott. “I am sure our father would have taken great pride in the fact that they made a wise investment in Western to help graduate students make strides in their research. It is wonderful to know that our parents’ generosity is making such an impact.”
