1986—The late Brian and Isabel Byrnes standing in front of their home. Their generous bequest allowed the Whonnock Foundation to initiate the Byrnes Bursary, a bursary program directed at post-secondary (university, college, or technical school) students from Whonnock and Ruskin.
The Whonnock Foundation was established in September 1994 to assist, encourage, and promote the well being of residents of the area between 256th Street and the Stave Lake and Stave River basin. The Foundation is registered as a charitable organization with Canadian Customs and Revenue Canada.
A board of directors is responsible for the overall policies and practices of the Foundation. Directors and members of the Foundation are volunteers.
The Foundation offers the Byrnes Bursary to residents and former residents of Whonnock and Ruskin and their children who are dedicated to successfully completing a course of studies and who because of financial circumstances may not be able to complete the proposed program in an orderly manner. The amount of the bursary available is up to $2,000 for each four-month term..
