Giving Opportunities

 

Establish a Student Award or Bursary

Today’s students face higher costs for their post-secondary education than previous generations and many struggle to balance school with a part-time job and other commitments. Donor-funded awards and bursaries help students meet their educational costs, such as tuition, and also provide recognition and encouragement to recipients.  

Establishing an award or bursary is a meaningful way to honour a loved one, commemorate a special occasion, or create a legacy. Donors can name an award or bursary with a family or individual name, a company name, or a community group name. 

Donations can be made in the form of awards, endowment awards, bursaries and existing student awards or bursaries.

Awards

Monetary awards based on criteria that may include academic achievement, demonstrated commitment in non-academic fields such as community service, student leadership and/or volunteerism, and financial need. 

Donors make a gift each year in the amount of the award. A minimum annual gift of $1,000 is required and must be pledged for at least five years. Donors are welcome to make a lump sum payment if they prefer.  

Endowment Awards

Monetary awards based on criteria that may include academic achievement, demonstrated commitment in non-academic fields such as community service, student leadership and/or volunteerism, and financial need.

Donors make a lump sum gift to create an endowment fund. The award is funded through interest generated from the capital in the endowment. To create an endowment that can provide a $1,000 award annually, a minimum gift of $25,000 is required. 

Bursaries

Monetary awards based on financial need. 

Donors make a gift each year in the amount of the bursary. A minimum annual gift of $1,000 is required and must be pledged for at least five years. Donors are welcome to make a lump sum payment if they prefer.  

Existing Student Awards or Bursaries

Based on the criteria mentioned above for awards and bursaries, donors make a gift of any denomination to an existing award or bursary. Full list of awards and bursaries available on the Awards, Bursaries & Scholarships page. 

 

Contribute to the Area of Greatest Need

Donors make a gift of any denomination in support of our Area of Greatest Need which is currently specialized training equipment such as AEDs, immobilization kits, and stretchers.  

 

Provide a Gift in Kind

Donors make a non-cash gift ranging from new or gently used training equipment to real estate. The JIBC Foundation only accepts non-cash gifts that will be of use to the Institute. A tax receipt will be issued for the fair market value of the gift upon a third-party valuation. 

 

Leave a Bequest 

Donors leave a bequest in their will. For bequest wording purposes, our legal name is "The Justice Institute of BC Foundation." A tax receipt will be issued for the estate at the time of the gift.
