Ways to support our students
Give today! Learning is our strength and community is our passion.
Your donation to the VCC Foundation will make an immediate impact in helping the student to build their career through innovative and experiential learning. All qualifying donations over $20 are eligible for a tax receipt.
Monthly giving helps your gift have a greater impact year-round.
Our monthly donor program provides consistent and invaluable support to campus projects and emerging student needs. By choosing to give in this way, you are reducing administration costs and impact on the environment, while supporting students.
When you join this giving family, youâ€™ll receive one single tax receipt at the beginning of the year that includes all your donations from the previous year. For employee payroll donors, your tax credit is applied directly to your T4. You will also receive our newsletters, annual reports, and special updates.

Whether you want to send condolences to a family or friend, honour an instructor, or celebrate a birthday or other special occasion â€” consider a tribute donation to support the VCC Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion project fund. Help eliminate financial, cultural, and societal barriers so all students can access and enjoy their chosen program of study.
The VCC Foundation will acknowledge your tribute gift with a note to the individual (without disclosing the amount). Messages provided at the time of your donation will also be passed along to the recipients through an e-card. You will also receive an acknowledgment.
When you make plans for a legacy donation, you are giving a future gift that will provide for the VCC Foundation in the years to come. There are many meaningful ways to make a lasting difference. A couple of the more common ways include:
- Give a gift in your Will
- Donate an RRSP, RRIF or TFSA
If you have already arranged a gift â€“ thank you! Please let us know, so we can thank you personally and keep you up to date on areas that interest you
Bequests made through a Will allow you to make a contribution to the future of the VCC Foundation, often a contribution that you could not consider making during your lifetime. Planning your legacy gift to the 69ÌÃ Foundation can be as simple as talking to your family and instructing your lawyer to add a clause into your Will
Here are some samples of Will clause language, which is information your lawyer will need to activate your wishes.
These sample will clauses are intended for informational purposes only and should not be viewed as legal advice. We encourage donors to seek legal counsel when making provisions for a charitable gift in their Will.

Support the 69ÌÃ Foundation with a future gift, by naming us as the beneficiary of your registered savings accounts. Donate the proceeds of a registered account such as a registered retirement savings plan (RRSP), a registered retirement income fund (RRIF), or a tax-free savings account (TFSA) is a great way to save month and/or defer tax payments into the future.
Make your gift:
- Name the 69ÌÃ Foundation the beneficiary of your registered account
- Maintain full use of your account during your lifetime
- After your passing, the VCC Foundation receives any remaining funds

You can donate publicly listed shares and securities including: stocks, bonds, or mutual fund shares instead of giving cash, creating tax savings.
Gifting securities is one of the most tax-effective ways to give, extending your savings beyond the donation tax credit. Transferring these assets to the 69ÌÃ Foundation, you will receive a donation receipt for the fair market value of the security and will also benefit from the complete elimination of the capital gains tax on those shares. As a result, the combined savings can be quite remarkable, with an after-tax cost that could be less than one-half of the gift!
Gifts of securities can be made in any amount and can also be gifted to charity in your will. This type of donation will decrease any capital gains that may occur within your estate.
Most securities are held electronically and can be easily transferred from your brokerage account to a brokerage account held by 69ÌÃ Foundation.
We recommend consulting with your professional advisor, before making a gift of publicly traded securities.

Are you able to donate equipment and/or other items that 69ÌÃ could use? If so, you could make a gift-in-kind donation. VCC will gladly accept any gifts-in-kind for which there is a use within the college. A donation receipt may be issued for the fair market value of the gift, based on an independent third-party evaluation of the gift.
Our employees help make VCC a difference every day.
VCC is proud to inspire a new generation of students to discover their passions, gain essential skills, and learn what it takes to succeed in a competitive workforce. This inspiration comes from the faculty and staff who work to support each student in their quest to prepare for their chosen career. There is a strong spirt of giving to ensure students have the technology, resources and support to succeed in their chosen program. Thanks to you, our faculty and staff, our students go on to do amazing things.
Each year in November our employees come together to raise funds to support our students, beyond the classroom. During the Giving Tuesday Campaign all donations made by employees are matched by the College/Foundation.
Our employee-giving community continues to grow each year. In 2022, over 106 VCC employees helped to fund scholarships, bursaries, awards, and projects and helped to ensure that every student has the supports they need on their educational journey.
