Your tax-deductible donation ensures continued support for our community.
We have already provided “seed” money which has allowed several students to further their education, advance their studies in the fine arts field, and benefit from specialized technological training. Our Foundation also provides assistance for the unemployed to allow for upgrading of skills.
Willing or donating money “In Memoriam” can be a living legacy in recognition of loved ones. Your charitable Donation gives back to your community providing further education for citizens ensuring a brighter future in the Cowichan Valley.
With your help, we can do so much more!
All donations are tax-deductible. It’s easy and rewarding to donate to your community and give the gift of financial support for historical sites, potential students, and community programs.
Thank you for my recent award for the 2016/2017 academic year at Vancouver Island University. This will assist me in completing my course on time and continuing into further studies at VIU.
This gift reinforces my decision to higher education and will ensure a strong start to a hard semester, Fall 2016. The privilege of sharing this news with my friends, associates and loved ones made my summer vacation complete.
I am grateful and honoured to be receiving this award. I will be using it to fund part of my tuition for my second year in the Criminology Diploma Program.
I am honoured to receive the Roger Stanyer Memorial Award! My deepest gratitude goes out to you and the Foundation. I feel a deep connection to the Cowichan Valley and all conservation efforts that serve to protect its beauty.
Returning to school as a mature student with physical and mental disabilities has proven to be both a challenge and a joy…I am beyond grateful to look at this as a milestone of my accomplishment and I am beyond grateful to know someone else believes in me too…
As a student returning to school later on (and with children at home), it is a huge boost of encouragement in returning and completing my studies.
The cost of higher education and all the added expenses is pretty overwhelming at times and this amount has definitely helped. Thank you ever so much!
I would like to express my deepest gratitude for the honour which you have bestowed upon me. The award and its financial benefit will go a long way to assist me in my studies this coming academic year.
