The reasons for making a donation are many: in lieu of flowers, 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 leaving a legacy for future generations. Whatever the reason, you can be assured that the recipients of the awards generated from these donations are very appreciative of the tangible support they receive. Over a hundred bursaries are provided annually to post-secondary students throughout BC.
