Supporting Academic Scholarships and Need-based Grants
A TWU education changes students’ lives and empowers them to bring joy and hope to the lives of others. For many students, a scholarship or grant is the difference between experiencing transformational education at TWU and not having the means to attend. You can make this difference in a student’s life by supporting academic scholarships and need-based grants. If you would like to help students attend TWU by supporting general academic scholarships and need-based grants, you can donate online or contact our Investments and Stewardship Team.
Creating a Named Scholarship or Bursary
Leave a lasting legacy, honour a loved one, promote a specific area of interest or raise the profile of a corporation or business. You name the award, decide who qualifies, and how it will be funded. Once a year, you will have the opportunity to meet the award recipient at our annual Legacy Reception and Brunch. And of course, you have the satisfaction of knowing that you have given the gift of an education. There are two types of named scholarships and bursaries: Endowed Awards require a minimum investment of $30,000 which can be given in a lump sum, paid over five years in monthly or annual contributions, or included in estate plans. Once the endowment reaches the $30,000 level, it provides valuable awards—while keeping the base value of the gift intact—in perpetuity. Every contribution to an award is fully tax deductible and a charitable receipt will be issued. Annual Awards are funded yearly and require a minimum annual investment of $1,500 as well as a commitment to fund the award for three consecutive years. If you would like to leave a lasting legacy by establishing a named scholarships or bursary, contact Tracey Byle at 604.513.2121 ext. 3370 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Spending of funds is confined to programs and projects approved by the University. Each restricted contribution designated towards such an approved program or project will be used as designated with the understanding that when the need for such a program or project has been met, or cannot be completed for any reason determined by the University, the remaining restricted contributions will be used where needed most as determined by the University.
