Give Back

As a former student, you have been the recipient of faithful gifts from others. As the Lord provides and prompts, help keep this legacy going so that others will be able to benefit by your gifts as well. Alumni can contribute to Prairie in various ways, by volunteering their time, talent or resources. We would love to discuss any means you would like to use to assist present and future Prairie students.

Refer a Student

Share your story of Prairie and how it impacted you! Consistently, the primary method of recruiting new students is the influence of an alumnus. Your referral can be worth $1,000 to a new student thanks to the Alumni Referral Bursary.

Refer a Student (Alumni Referral Bursary)

The Alumni Referral Bursary has been created to provide alumni with tangible tools with which to aid our recruitment efforts. There is no cost to alumni who wish to participate. Prairie would be pleased to present a $1000 Alumni Referral Bursary to the student the alumnus nominates provided the following terms & conditions are met.
