Creating a Scholarship Fund.

When you create a Scholarship Fund you invest in your community’s future and show students you care.

The Chilliwack Foundation provides the expertise to help you meet your personal goals and awards scholarships to deserving students. Your gift can help students – from preschool to postgraduate – achieve their lifetime dreams.

How it Works:

  • You make a gift to the Chilliwack Foundation – you can give cash, appreciated stocks, real estate, or other assets.
  • We set up a Scholarship Fund in your name, in the name of your family or business, or in honour of any person or organization you choose.
  • You receive tax benefits in the year your gift is made.
  • You determine eligibility requirements for the scholarship you establish – whether they are based on a student’s field of study, academic achievements, extracurricular activities, financial need, background, or geography.
  • We handle all the administrative details and award scholarships to deserving students in the name of the fund you establish.
  • You receive updates on the impact your gift is making in our community. You may even choose to meet the students your gift is helping, something many donors find rewarding.
  • Your gift can be placed into an endowment that is invested over time. Earnings from your fund are used to make grants addressing community needs. Your gift – and all future earnings from your gift – is a permanent source of community capital, helping to do good work forever.
