RNFBC - Bursary Application

The RNFBC was established in 1979 to advance excellence in
nursing education. At that time, an endowment fund was set
up and a bursary program created for BC nursing students
that has grown to over $5 million from donor contributions.

When you make a gift, your donation helps grow our portfolio and a portion of the interest is awarded in bursaries. Gifts made today towards bursaries, will continue to give in perpetuity. Every gift made increases the funds we can award.

The Light-A-Lamp for Knowledge Donor Listing works the same: As you continue to give more, your recognition level increases with associated benefits.

Important Notes & Recognition Categories:

  • This recognition program will run until December 31, 2019 and may be continued.
  • As you make additional gifts, your recognition category can increase.
  • Gifts made In Memory and In Honour of people are recognized, include the names of their contributors if
    the total of contributions total more than $300 made in that year.
  • Gift-in-kind contributions are not recognized on this list.
  • If you wish to contribute anonymously, please contact Josh Coward at the RNFBC office jcoward@rnfbc.ca.
