Sponsorship and Donations

Okanagan College believes in providing our Culinary Arts students with real-life learning experiences and opportunities to give back to the local community. We are often asked to contribute our time and talents in ... dinners. Due to the sheer number of requests, we have implemented a procedure that includes a brief questionnaire that will be reviewed by a committee that meets on a monthly basis.

If you wish to have your request reviewed by our committee, please complete the following online form: OC Culinary Sponsorship and Donations Form.

While we would like to support all requests, it simply is not possible for us to do so. If you do not hear back from us within three weeks, it is likely we cannot accommodate your request.

Only online requests will be reviewed. Please allow approximately three weeks to process your request.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.
