Michael W. Groves Memorial Bursary

Michael cared deeply about his family and friends and it would be wonderful to extend that caring for others into the future. The family hopes that this bursary could be that helping hand, extended by Michael, to others striving to reach their goals.

A little about Michael:

Michael W. Groves (Little Michael, Monkey, Milkey Duds, Mikey G) was a very loving young man adored by all who knew him. He wore his heart on his sleeve and was dearly loved by family and many friends. At family gatherings, children sought him out because he was so funny and would play at their level; even when he shot over six feet tall. It took only minutes for little ones, friends or strangers to feel comfortable around him. He had a special bond with his Mom, Dad, Sister and Grandparents who loved and protected him. His sense of style was singular and reflected his distinctive personality. He enjoyed spending time with his many friends and living life to the fullest.

At a young age, Michael absorbed his dads infatuation with anything that had an engine (or anything they could put an engine on) and they spent many hours building, driving and repairing. When he got older it was all about derby cars. Find, prep, smash, big smile.


Funding target:

Our goal is to provide a bursary of $750.00 for a qualified student each year for a minimum of 5 years. If we exceed our goal, we could consider awarding an additional student each year or extending a single bursary beyond 5 years.


This bursary will be awarded to a student who has attended a St. Thomas high school, demonstrates a need for financial assistance, and will be enrolled in a program at either of the London Fanshawe campuses or the St. Thomas Fanshawe campus.

About the charity

Our focus is to meet both the needs of students today while investing in the bold initiatives and state-of-the-art infrastructure that will benefit the students of tomorrow.
