Okanagan College Foundation

Let's celebrate Giving Tuesday!

Join us to support students Nov. 30

The Okanagan College Foundation is encouraging Okanagan College faculty and staff members to get involved in Giving Tuesday Nov. 30, with each campus hosting specific fundraising drives to benefit students.

Most of the events on campus will focus on supporting student food banks and holiday hampers. 

Anyone dropping off an item will be entered into a prize draw to win a Holiday Gift Basket, put together by the OC Foundation, with one prize basket per campus.

Events

Okanagan College Foundation hosts a number of special events throughout the year. Some events are designed to raise funds, and some are designed to celebrate and honour our donors and students.

The biggest fundraising event of the year is the Okanagan College Foundation/Western Financial Group Annual Golf Charity Tournament, which has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for Okanagan College students throughout the region.

Each of the campuses also hold special events, such as Donor Celebrations and Student Awards Nights where donors are invited to make a personal connection with the recipients of their awards.
