Contacting the Foundation

The Thompson Rivers University Foundation is a registered society under the statutes of the Province of British Columbia and can issue charitable donation receipts to all of its donors.

A gift to the TRU Foundation is an investment in the future of higher education. The Foundation provides funds for the financial support of TRU students and TRU's programs and projects. The Foundation serves as the manager and trustee of funds invested in the Foundation's Endowment Fund, which currently stands at $24 million.

The TRU Foundation raises and manages funds to provide scholarships, bursaries and special needs funding to support students in post-secondary education and training.

Raising and managing funds is accomplished by a volunteer Board of Directors, a society of community leaders, staff members and significant support from a large complement of volunteers.
