On behalf of Holland College, the Holland College Foundation, and the many students whose lives will be enhanced by the services offered in the wellness centre, we thank the following early donors to the Thrive campaign for their commitment to establishing a centre for student wellness, resilience, and success.

At Credit Unions across PEI, we know that an individual's greatest wealth is their health, and there is nothing more important than one's own mental health. Through this partnership, we will be able to support students across PEI during a challenging time in their life - which is truly the essence of what we, as credit unions, do.
Medavie, through the Medavie Foundation, is proud to support the Thrive campaign, which will provide timely and appropriate mental health supports for the next generation. We know this is incredibly important for students as they work their way through their studies and prepare to launch themselves into the world.
