A warm, informal reception took place April 4 at the home of Rector Frederick Lowy to recognize Harriet and Abe Gold’s $1 million contribution to the Campaign for a New Millennium. The Golds are former Montrealers who have retired to the Bahamas and Florida.
They were brought into the Concordia fold by longtime Concordia friend Governor Emeritus Leonard Ellen, a personal friend.

The Golds’ $1 million endowment will fund, in perpetuity, 10 graduate fellowships of $5,000 each for Master’s or doctoral students in any Faculty.
