“Beyond the Canada Winter Games, the Gary W. Harris Canada Games Centre will also provide teaching and learning spaces, and will be a venue for athletic performance and for students and the community.

Corporate donors to RDC recognize the synergy between the work we do and the work they want to do. Support for Red Deer College connects businesses to the workforce they will hire from, and our collaborative approach to partnership ensures that the needs of business and industry shape and frame course delivery in a way that creates desirable graduates who are prepared for their new careers. Corporate support for Red Deer College is the most direct opportunity to develop the employee pool you will draw from, and which will support the growth, breadth and health of the economy in which your business operates.  

Corporate donors have also found value in named spaces or equipment purchases, which underscore the work they do, their values statements or their social responsibility commitments. Red Deer College looks forward to developing meaningful recognition options with our donors. Our multi-campus footprint in central Alberta connects over 100,000 visitors each year, creating a range of recognition opportunities including named spaces, which range in value from $25,000 to $3 million.  

A gift to establish an Operating Endowment for any of our seven Schools is another way to create significant impact at RDC. Operating Endowments can be launched with $35,000, which will kick-start an effort to achieve self-sustaining funding for each program area. Your support coupled with RDC’s commitment to innovative funding structures and fund management will support the stability of our resources.  

With sustainable funding, RDC can continue to provide top-level education, with less dependence on government sources. Generous donations from business and industry contribute to RDC’s ability to award more than $1,000,000 in scholarships to our learners each year, in addition to funding for infrastructure and program development. Innovative funding models like the Athletics Leadership Fund ensure the sustainability of our scholarships programs, development projects and other needs. 

Corporate donors also find value in using the facilities, equipment and experts at RDC to conduct their own research and development. Learn more about our RDC’s Corporate Solutions here.
