Update on Women in Computing Science Alumni Endowment Fund for SFU

I recently posted about how I've been working with WICS @ SFU (Women in Computing Science @ SFU) alumni to set up an Endowment Fund to support women studying CS at SFU.

We're pretty close to raising the $20K we need (need about $6K $4K still), but more is always appreciated and will help make the scholarship larger/get started sooner. Please spread the word if there are alumni I missed!

Instructions for donating in Canada:

  • Go to
  • Click the bar 'Online' and add your contact information
  • Under *Please designate my gift*, choose: Faculty of Applied Sciences - Student Support
  • Under *Additional Donation Designation Information* - please enter the name of the fund as 'The Women in Computing Science Alumni Endowment Fund'.
You can also donate if you are in the US, the organization is Friends Of Simon Fraser University which is a 501(3)c (for charitable donation purposes).

Thanks to Brittany Zenger for this awesome idea! And many thanks to other WICS alumni for spreading the word: Angelica LimCrystal XingMing HuaXiaoyuan Vivian Xu, and many others (sorry if I missed you). Also special thanks to Greg Baker for your help in discussions with the school and spreading the word, and Sumo Kindersley and Nancy Bart for your ongoing support.
