Employee giving

The Employee Giving program enables Coast Mountain College staff to have a nominal amount of money deducted from their pay to contribute to student scholarships, awards & bursaries.

For as little as $10 per pay cheque, you can choose the bursary or award that you would like to contribute to. A big thank you to the staff members who have already signed on to the program.

Did you know?

  • 100% of donations go to students and you get a charitable tax receipt automatically on your T4
  • If every staff member gave just $10 every pay day we would be contributing approximately $52,000 annually to student Scholarships, awards and bursaries.

  • Funding my education was daunting. I almost quit because I knew how deep in debt I was getting into. I give to the student emergency funds. Most students hit barriers that feel overwhelming. Financial help during an emergency can make a huge impact.

  • We give to share the opportunity for success. That first helping hand is often the one that makes the biggest difference.
