TRU Foundation

First-Year Student Resiliency Fund

The COVID-19 pandemic has created unforeseen challenges for students. We are committed to doing everything we can to provide assistance as we move through this crisis together as a community. TRU aims to raise $50,000 to provide up to 100 first-year students with additional tuition support through the First-Year Student Resiliency Fund. The TRU Foundation will match up to $25,000 donated. The resiliency awards will give students another source for pandemic-related financial relief so no student is faced with postponing their education.

Helping Students

The Thompson Rivers University (TRU) 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 $25 million.

The TRU Foundation gratefully acknowledges the financial assistance of the Province of British Columbia and the BC Gaming Fund.

The Foundation puts on many events throughout the year that contribute to our fundraising efforts. Our events give us an opportunity to thank and celebrate our donors while raising funds at the same time. Participating in or sponsoring either our award winning Gala or our fun annual golf tournament in August, is a great way to support the Foundation’s efforts to provide financial aid for students.
