We are proud to announce that the Logan Katz LLP accounting firm has renewed its loyal support to the Telfer School of Management with $100,000 to fund student activities and to help recruit and retain top accounting professors.
The funds will be invested equally between a student activity fund and the Logan Katz LLP Accounting Fellowship. Startup Garage, a 3-month program led by the University of Ottawa to foster and support youth entrepreneurship, was the first activity to receive funding.
The fellowship will be awarded to a professor in recognition of their commitment and dedication to the accounting profession, their excellence in teaching and their mentorship of students towards a career in accounting.
"I would like to extend my thanks on behalf of the Telfer School community to Logan Katz LLP for their renewed financial commitment”, stated Dean François Julien. "Logan Katz has been one of our best corporate partners for many years: hiring coop students and young alumni into permanent positions, supporting students and campus activities including the Logan Katz LLP Accounting Scholarship and the CASCO gala."
Two of the firm’s partners, David Logan (BCom 1980) and Denis Chainé (BCom 1989), are alumni of the Telfer School and have been involved for many years in various initiatives, such as the Executive Mentorship Program and the accounting capstone course competition.
"We are announcing this contribution to the university because it represents an investment, not only in the future of students, but in our society's collective future as a whole. It is where our future leaders are developing, and we feel a need to pitch in to ensure each one of these future leaders is positioned to seize every opportunity presented to them” stated David Logan and Denis Chainé. “The University of Ottawa Telfer School of Management, in our view, provides an ideal stage to allow for this."
Logan Katz LLP is one of many organisations who continue to stay connected with and give back to the Telfer School of Management to support the programs and projects that matter most to them, and to help the Telfer School achieve its goals.
Across a diverse range of projects and programs, the top priorities of the Telfer School’s fundraising campaign are to transform how we learn; invest in globalization; generate new knowledge; foster experiential learning; support scholarships and fund emerging strategic priorities.
