Current Campaign: Piping Mezzanine

As a family grows, they sometimes outgrow their living space and may need to build an addition. The same thing happens in our classrooms. A 5th level to the apprenticeship system was added to the certification of plumbers and pipefitters by Apprenticeship Manitoba. This change requires different facilities to accommodate the expansion of gas fitter curriculum.

With the help of the Foundation, Assiniboine will increase the square footage for the gas and pipe fitting component of the program by adding a 925 square foot mezzanine at a cost of $120,000. The space will allow instructors in the Plumbing program to teach students in an atmosphere conducive to acquiring the complete skills needed to graduate. The addition of the mezzanine will keep the program current, enabling our graduates to contribute to industry immediately.

Area of Greatest Need

Allows the college to assign funds to the project with greatest student need, or to the devolopment of new student learning spaces.

Planned Giving

Planned giving is any gift, either outright or deferred, made with forethought about the benefits to a charity and the financial implications to the donor. Planned gifts to Assiniboine Community College Foundation can support student scholarships, awards, bursaries, capital projects, or enhancing student life and experiences, inside or outside the classroom.

In many cases, planned gifts come about because of changes in the life cycle, illness or death of family members. Planned giving can provide taxable incentives, reducing tax bills by almost half while leaving a legacy through a variety of affordable methods suited to your goals, needs and timeline.
