Ways to Give

Whether recognizing outstanding achievement or providing much-needed financial assistance, donor-funded scholarships, awards and bursaries are an investment in students.

One-time or Annual Awards 

Annual gifts of $500 or more ($1,000 and up for entrance awards) support student scholarships or bursaries. Annual contributions may be designated to support students in specific programs or CNC can direct the funds to program areas of greatest need.

Endowment Awards 

Endowments create a lasting legacy at CNC. A minimum donation of $25,000 will provide a source of funding for scholarships and bursaries. Endowments can be created to support students in specific programs, or CNC can direct the funds to program areas of greatest need. Once established, an endowment can continue to grow through ongoing contributions from industry partners, family, or friends. 

Endowment/Annual Award Combinations

Donors may choose to fund an award on an annual basis, while establishing your endowed fund through additional gifts pledged over a number of years. Over time, the goal is reached, and the annual award is fully supported by its endowment income.

Legacy & Planned Giving

Many of our donors have planned their estate with the College in mind as a thoughtful legacy to future developments and future students. We would be honoured to discuss these and other planned giving methods with you and your estate planning advisor.


If you would like to make a contribution between one and five years, pledges are a fantastic option. This method allows you to make a larger contribution with multi-payments to a project of interest over time, while allowing the College to plan ahead knowing that your commitment is in place to help fund the project.

Gifts In-Kind

Gifts of books, training aids and equipment are incredibly valuable to our programs and overall student learning. These contributions provide students with a wide range of hands-on experience—essential in today’s learning environments. Tax receipts may be provided for these generous and valuable gifts. For a gift of more than $1,000, the receipt issued will be based on a valuation established by an independent appraiser (a gift in-kind does not include a gift of services).
