COVID-19 Institute response

Supporting students through philanthropy

BCIT Foundation

In response to 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, partners, and you, our volunteers, as we always have. Thank you for your patience in these unprecedented times.

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 or by phone at 604-432-8803, and we will return your inquiry as soon as possible.

We appreciate those who have reached out to ask how they can help. As we understand the tremendous impact COVID-19 has on our students, we will be sharing opportunities to support their success amidst this turmoil.

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.
