UBC Giving Day is April 7, 2021. There is an opportunity to contribute on or before that date to the Mycology Award started in the Ceskas’ names in 2015 and supporting mycological research.
From Adolf’s page on Facebook:
The late Jean Johnson started the UBC Oluna and Adolf Ceska Mycology Award to appreciate our friendship and mutual respect. With contributions by Jean’s husband Steve, anonymous donors, South Vancouver Island Mycological Society and Vancouver Mycological Society, donations reached the minimum of $30,000 required for the fund endowed in perpetuity.
This fund supports a $1,350 award for undergraduate or graduate students who conduct mycological research, with preferences going to students researching mushrooms and fungi of British Columbia.
UBC will have their 2021 GIVING DAY on April 7. Please be part of it and contribute to this student award. Make your donation on or before April 7, 2021, and your gift will be counted towards the UBC Giving Day total.
You can donate online at https://donate.support.ubc.ca/page/56413/donate/1
In the “Direct my gift to” prompt, enter the following line:
Oluna and Adolf Ceska Award in Mycology-G1453[Entering G1453 works too, but typing the name of the award is insurance.]
Since the beginning of this award (2016/17), the “Ceska Fund” has supported four or five valuable projects in the UBC Mycology graduate studies.
Your help is greatly appreciated! Many thanks!
Adolf and Oluna Ceska
