Investing in our heritage together means supporting not only the potential of students’ dreams and ambitions but also securing the foundation of post-secondary education in Québec that reflects our community’s aspirations.
When you give to Cégep Heritage College Foundation, your investment supports students who are just starting their studies or who are demonstrating perseverance and resilience in the face of obstacles as they work toward their goals. That kind of generosity makes a positive impact on those individual students, on the College, and builds up the broader community.
Graduates of Heritage go on to realize their individual academic and career goals and to make contributions that strengthen the economic and cultural roots of our society.
As we celebrate the 10-year anniversary of the Cégep Heritage College Foundation in 2023, we plan to work with the College to reach out to Heritage founders and alumni to highlight their accomplishments and engage them in encouraging current students with their stories. If you are an alumna/us or know one, please get in touch with us!
"Upon receiving the bursary at the awards ceremony, I called my husband to tell him which bursary I received and he went very quiet on the phone. I asked him if everything was okay and he said, yes, everything is going to be okay. I cried. My husband was worried about the upcoming semester and was preparing to tell me that I may need to take a semester off because the costs of travelling to school had added up and we needed to get caught up on the bills. Your foundation has made it possible for me to persevere. From the bottom of my heart, I thank you. Thank you so much for making this happen and allowing me to continue my education."
