WELCOME TO THE NATE BLACK FOUNDATION

CAN’T STOP.
WON’T STOP.

A SCHOLARSHIP FUND DEDICATED TO CREATING BRIGHTER FUTURES

April 16, 1985 - February 23, 2015
Nathan James Carl Holder (aka Nate Black) was an exemplary student athlete at Western University and entrepreneur in the Toronto community. Nate left a lasting positive impression on everyone he met. The outpouring of love and support to his family after his sudden passing was hardly surprising to those who knew him. Nate brought light to so many lives, this foundation was set up to honour his memory to continually pass that light on.

OUR STORY

Nate Black was the consummate dreamer and achiever who was fuelled by the positivity of everyone around him. To Nate, everyone was family – and in his passing we all felt like we lost a brother. The Nate Black Foundation was established to provide the next generation of high achievers with an opportunity to have financial security in the pursuit of their dreams. This scholarship also aims to bring everyone from Nate’s ‘family’ together to provide a sense of community and mentorship for students looking to navigate their way beyond university and into successful careers.

Not everyone gets the opportunity to chase their wildest dreams or even afford to dream. Nate understood his achievements in that context and was always humble. We believe that with the right foundation the students selected for this scholarship will be given the chance to excel and achieve their fullest potential. And, we want you to help!
