Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson, former Carleton President Dr. Roseann O’Reilly Runte and Jay Nordenstrom

As a proud alumnus of Carleton University, Jay is passionate about contributing his time towards volunteering within the Carleton and broader community. His dedication to volunteering is contagious, as he encourages fellow students to give back as Carleton ambassadors by volunteering with powerful initiatives in our community.

This award will support students who wish to make a difference in their community by providing financial assistance to deserving student volunteers. Volunteer work helps foster meaningful opportunities to connect and make a positive impact in our community, which prepares students to be well-rounded citizens. By supporting the Jay Nordenstrom Volunteer Fund, you are providing the opportunity for the next generation of leaders to worry more about their cause and academics, rather than their rent.
