Camosun College Foundation

50th Anniversary Student Bursary Legacy Fund

50 for 50

Celebrate GivingTuesday with a gift to Camosun students in need, and have your donation doubled! From now until Nov 30 all donations to the Camosun 50th Anniversary Bursary Legacy Fund up to $15,000 will be matched by the Camosun College Student Society.

Thanks to the Camosun Student Society your gift will help twice as many students in need attend college, doubling your impact!

As one of the most expensive places to live in Canada, student bursaries provide much-needed financial relief for students in need. Students benefiting from this bursary will be able to focus on their studies without the added financial burden of tuition and other expenses. Each year we see an increase in students applying for bursaries, and sadly each year we have to turn eligible students down due to lack of funding. With your gift we can help more students with the gift of quality education.

In honour of Camosun’s 50th anniversary this new bursary was established to help students in any program experiencing financial need attend college. We invite you to join us by marking this milestone with a donation celebrating the impact Camosun has had in your life and in our community.

“I am a first-generation college student who comes from a single-parent household where my mother works as a receptionist and I work at a local restaurant to help pay for tuition and living expenses. The nursing program is extremely rigorous and is known around the world for being one of the hardest undergraduate degrees to obtain. Therefore, balancing work and school is very difficult. This takes a massive weight off my shoulders.” –3rd year Nursing Student
