Purpose of Fund:

The Coquitlam Centre Fund raised funds at Coquitlam Centre’s Unwined event in May 2011. It was established in October 2011 in order to assist School District 43 graduates to pursue post-secondary studies in the fields of Business, Marketing or Urban Land Economics. In February 2016 the terms of the fund were expanded to allow assistance to organizations in and around the Tri-Cities for the following charitable purposes:

  • providing financial assistance for and in support of children/youth programs
  • services to enable children/youth to gain confidence in themselves, adopt a healthy lifestyle, learn leadership skills and the importance of being a contributing member of society
  • providing financial assistance to organizations that enable children/youth to deal with bullying, discrimination and alienation
  • providing financial assistance for groups and organizations that provide support and education/resources for children/youth living with mental health afflictions.

Eligibility:

For individuals pursuing post secondary studies in the fields of Business, Marketing or Urban Land Economics, based on the availability of funds and qualified applicants
