When you, as an Okanagan College employee give, it speaks volumes. This is because you have unique insight into precisely what's needed based on your close relationship to the College.

The Foundation deeply values employee contributions, and there are a number of ways you can support students:

  • Payroll donations: Choose to donate a certain amount monthly and have that amount automatically deducted from your salary every pay day. Your donations are recorded on your T4 issued by Okanagan College each year.
     
  • 50/50 Staff Lottery:  For only $5 per pay period, you have an opportunity to win a lotto jackpot every payday while supporting student emergency bursaries. 

There are many ways organizations can partner with Okanagan College to create engagement and learning opportunities with students.

Businesses can set up a named award to support a student in their chosen field or give to a specific program or new facility. Contact us to learn about our current naming and sponsorship opportunities: foundation@okanagan.bc.ca
