Okanagan College Employee Campaign
You make a difference for students
When you, as an Okanagan College employee give, it speaks volumes.
This is because you have unique insight into precisely what's needed based on your close relationship to the College.
The Foundation deeply values employee contributions, and so the Okanagan College Employee Campaign provides opportunities for our internal community to fund initiatives with a personal touch — or even create something as a group. You have the option of deciding where your generosity is directed.
Know that your gift will help students succeed in many different ways. For example, students tell us that awards:
- Help them focus on their studies by working less
- Relieve the financial pressure of attending school
- For some students, an award is the difference between continuing with school or leaving
- Provide opportunities to pursue extra- curricular and volunteer activities
(One of our students is going to school while practising for the 2022 Winter Olympics)
Your gift can also help us build modern facilities. We are currently building a new Health Sciences Centre on the Kelowna campus. Our state-of-the-art teaching centre will train nurses, health care assistants and other high-demand positions so care is there when we need it.
For as little as $5 per pay cheque, you can support transformation at the College.
Payroll Deduction or One-Time Donation
Employees can make a lump sum donation, or choose to break down their contribution into bi-weekly payments through payroll deduction.
Funds can be designated for a variety of purposes, including the Health Sciences Centre Campaign and the Annual Campaign Fund - used by Deans and program chairs to support their most pressing initiatives - and could include support for new programs, purchase of books, technology or equipment.
You can complete the Online Payroll Deduction Form or download the Payroll Deduction Form (link will open in a new window) and submit the completed form to the Foundation office. To make a one-time donation, click on the Donate Now button below. Donations made in this manner will receive a charitable tax receipt.
50/50 Staff LotteryMany of our employees take part in the Staff Lottery, which is held every payday, with winners typically receiving more than $500 - all while contributing to a great cause - helping students in financial crisis. To find out more about the Staff Lottery, click here.
