Credit union gives $1 million gift to Conrad Grebel

Call for volunteers

Mennonite Savings and Credit Union’s $1 million gift will add a fourth floor to the plans for a $6.3 million centre announced in the spring that would triple space for the Mennonite Archives of Ontario, double study space and add 460 square metres for community education in the Peace and Conflict Studies Department

Susan Schultz Huxman, the newly installed president of Conrad Grebel University College, called it a “transformative gift, the largest single gift in Conrad Grebel’s history.” And it was especially fitting on the eve of Remembrance Day.
