Donate Today

Founded in 1997, the Assiniboine Community College (ACC) Foundation is a non-profit charitable organization registered with Canada Revenue Agency.

Our board of directors are volunteers and community leaders committed to supporting and enhancing the vision, mission and values of the college through the development of support from private sector and individuals, including ACC Alumni. Our staff are fundraising professionals dedicated to stewarding our donors’ best interests.

For 20 years, the ACC Foundation has focussed on helping students complete their post-secondary education by supporting them with scholarships, awards and bursaries. When we were established in 1997, $25,000 was raised from private donors in our first year. Today…

  • We present approximately $300,000 annually in student awards; in 2016-17 we presented $342,000 to more than 300 students
  • Manage a $3.1 million endowment for scholarships, awards, bursaries and capital projects

Donors play a large part in the college providing better training to our students. In our healthcare programs, donors contributed $240,000 of the $500,000 health care simulation training lab, helping our students to enjoy exceptional learning experiences.

In 2017-18, we aim to double the amount we raise for student scholarships to $300,000, and increase the amount we distribute to students to $450,000. With the help of current and new donors, our Alumni, ACC staff, and others – we know we can reach these goals.
