- Banner display and recognition
- Other avenues customized to suit to donor preferences
Sponsor a Student
If you would like to help a local student that really needs financial support, we can connect your sponsorship gift with a very deserving student from our annual pool of bursary applicants. When you sponsor a student in any amount, you can designate the campus and program area that are meaningful to you as well as establish other criteria such as community involvement or volunteer experience. You will receive a tax receipt for your donation as well as a letter naming the student who received your gift. You may also have the opportunity to meet your student at our annual Awards Reception.
How does my donation help?
With the rising cost of education, your gift in any amount would be an unexpected relief for a student. Outside of the cost of education, students sustain living costs (rent, groceries, bills, child care, etc.) often without any other form of income while studying in a full-time program.
