In response to the increased financial challenges facing students as a result of the COVID-19 crisis, BCIT has established the COVID-19 Emergency Student Response Fund to give them much-needed aid. Now more than ever, our students need financial support to help keep their dream of completing their studies at BCIT within reach.

We hope you will consider giving to this fund.

Our operations during COVID-19

During the COVID-19 crisis, BCIT Foundation is operating with a minimum staff presence as the balance of our team works remotely. Rest assured that we continue to be hard at work, supporting our students, alumni, donors, and partners, as we always have. Thank you for your patience.

The health, safety, and well-being of our staff and the community is very important to us. Please feel free to connect with us by email at foundation@bcit.ca or by phone at 604-432-8803, and we will return your inquiry as soon as possible.

During these challenging times, we are more committed than ever to fostering an engaged community through our social channels. In the coming weeks, we will aim to share content that is not only helpful but also positive, relevant, and inspiring. Find us on Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn (search ‘BCIT Foundation’).

Be safe, be well. Together we can overcome this.

 

 

Your generosity has the power to change lives. With your support, we can give our students a way forward through life-changing bursaries, scholarships, and awards. We can also invest in BCIT to ensure our graduates have the skills they need to tackle the world’s complex challenges. Together, we can cultivate the creators, leaders, and innovators of tomorrow.
