Supporting the transformative power of education
Okanagan College Foundation was created nearly 20 years ago with a mission to support student potential today and for the future. The Foundation stimulates the interest of alumni, friends, corporations and foundations in creating the best possible outcomes for students at Okanagan College. We raise and manage private resources for the development and expansion of educational programs, services, capital projects and student financial aid through scholarships, bursaries, and grants.
