Supporting students through philanthropy

Giving to BCIT

You make a difference

Thanks to our generous donors, we’ve accomplished some incredible things in an unprecedented year:

  • 1,963 students received critical support
  • $3.35 million in awards were granted
  • 106,000 square feet of new learning space is under construction

Donations allow students to focus on their studies rather than finances and empower them to succeed. Access to education has never been more important, and our donors’ dedication to investing in BCIT students is profound.

To our donors, thank you for continuing to inspire us through your philanthropic leadership. To the BCIT community, thank you for your invaluable support. Together, there is no limit to what we can achieve!

With gratitude and warm wishes for a bountiful Thanksgiving,

Jackie Jacob
Executive Director
BCIT Foundation

Establish a student scholarship, bursary, or award

The generous donors behind BCIT’s awards are the key to the success of BCIT and its students. The cost of education today makes it harder than ever for students to balance their studies and pay bills. These awards can often make the difference in a student being able to complete their studies.

Endowed awards
Endowments create a lasting legacy at BCIT by providing a permanent source of funding for scholarship, bursaries or awards. Endowments can be created to support students in specific programs or BCIT can direct the funds to program areas of greatest need. Once established, contributions can be made to the endowment from industry partners, family, or friends.

An endowment is a permanent fund supporting awards. The Endowment must generate the minimum award amount. Please contact for more information.

Annual awards

Annual gifts support student awards, scholarships or bursaries. Annual contributions may be designated to support students in specific programs or BCIT can direct the funds to program areas of greatest need.
