Your gift to VCC can be made using cash or credit card. You can choose to give annually or monthly and you will receive a charitable tax receipt for your donation.
We thank you for supporting VCC students with your kind donation. Every donation to the VCC Foundation, large or small, is an investment not only in our students but in families, neighbourhoods, communities and workplaces. Your choice to support post-secondary education helps ensure a better future for British Columbia and Canada. A gift to the Foundation shows our students that the community believes in them, and supports their efforts to gain the knowledge and skills they need to find their place in the workforce.
Recognizing your gift
Your generosity is appreciated by the VCC Foundation. To recognize you for making VCC students a priority, your name will appear on the donor wall at both VCC campuses, and in the case of a scholarship or award you will be invited to the award ceremony to make the presentation to the student recipient in person.

Scholarships, awards, and bursaries
Whether you want to support students in financial need or reward academic achievement, you can assist students in reaching their educational goals.
A scholarship is an award given in recognition of academic excellence or achievement. Scholarships of $500 or greater are presented at annual award ceremonies held in May and November.
An award is based on a broader range of criteria that may or may not include academic excellence, such as community involvement, leadership skills, demonstration of tremendous effort, financial need etc. The criteria are determined by the donor to reflect their values and priorities. These gifts of $500 or greater are also presented our annual awards ceremonies.
A bursary is an award distributed based on financial need. Consequently, they are awarded privately and confidentially throughout the year.
