For students graduating from high school in B.C. going onto university or other post-secondary institutions, Steven and Susan Rubin have established the Masonic Educational Endowment Fund through the Delta Community Foundation.
The $1,800 scholarship will be open to Canadian high school students and landed immigrants, of three years or more, who wish to attend a post-secondary institution in Canada or Israel.
Steven, a 32nd Degree Mason has dedicated his life to helping people better themselves and their business. In 2014 at the age of 66, Steven met his wife Susan, who is retired after a 25-year career as a school teacher and who was involved in several youth programs in the community. When the pair met they instantly had a common bond and similar goal in mind.
“Susan and I are extremely excited to announce the creation of the Steven and Susan Rubin Masonic Educational Endowment Fund to provide scholarships for students to pursue their academic dreams,” said Steven. “We are happy to be able to provide another avenue to turn to for funding their educational goals that goes beyond the academic focus and is geared more towards the individual.”
The Delta Community Foundation will administer the endowment fund, which will support the scholarship program to be managed by the Rubins and a scholarship committee.

The Delta Community Foundation is Delta's only Foundation dedicated to funding all charities in Delta and creating administering endowments.
