Community Futures Sunshine Coast and the Sunshine Coast Community Foundation are partnering up to create an endowment in honour of Barrie Wilbee.

Sandra Cunningham, Executive Director of the Community Foundation says the funds that are accumulated from the endowment will go towards the Barrie Wilbee Bursary for Sunshine Coast Entrepreneurs.

Only Sunshine Coast residents who are looking to further their education in business skills, economic development, and entrepreneurship will be eligible for the bursary.

Applicants who are interested in applying for the bursary will need to contact Community Futures and the bursary will be handed out annually.
