Applications for our 2019/2020 Many Hands Project are now closed. All funds raised from this year’s student-run events will be used to help support a non-profit organization within the Niagara Region. We look forward to announcing who our 2019/2020 Many Hands Recipient will be!

The Many Hands Project is a student-driven community project run by the Event Management Program in the School of Hospitality, Tourism and Sport at Niagara College. The Event Management program students will plan and execute fundraising events throughout the academic year to raise money for the deserving recipient.

Now in its 23rd year, the student-led Many Hands project will provide resources for the much-needed programming that supports Niagara Region’s vulnerable citizens. The value of this project will be approximately $5,000.


To develop community co-operation and pride through volunteer-driven projects aimed at assisting non-profit organizations in the Niagara Region.
