Why Donate to SCWIST?
|Your support of SCWIST will promote and empower women working in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) as well as encourage and provide assistance to young women and girls pursuing their dreams of a career in STEM allowing them to grow, develop, and succeed in their fields.
See below for several ways to donate, both for annual operations and into our Spirit of SCWIST endowment fund.
Your donation will support:
The Spirit of SCWIST fund, established in 2017, is an endowment fund that provides steady income and enables us to advance our mission over the long-term. In years where donations are down or grant funding is reduced, income from our endowment fund will still arrive. And because Vancouver Foundation administers our fund, we know it will be invested wisely, is social responsible and expertly managed.
Donate and help us ensure our critical work will continue long into the future. If you would like to make the Spirit of SCWIST fund part of your legacy, please see ways to do so below or contact us.
Note, all donations from May 01 to our New Year event in January 2018 will go to establishing the fund. Special thanks to the founding donors, the SCWIST Elders (founders and past presidents).
Thanks to your support of SCWIST we have made great strides in the education and promotion of women in science, engineering, math and technology throughout Canada since 1981. Canadian women and girls benefit from your continued financial support and the encouragement it provides.
