Individuals and organizations are encouraged to make a donation to the foundation. There are many reasons to donate, including; gifts in lieu of flowers or in honour of credit union pioneers, a retirement or birthday gift, in memory of loved ones, in recognition of volunteer work, as a bequest, or in order to leave a legacy for future generations. Whatever the reason, you can be sure that the recipients of foundation bursaries are incredibly appreciative of the support they receive. Over two hundred bursaries are provided annually to post-secondary students throughout BC.
