Remember the feeling of pride for the hard work and determination it took to get there? Despite all the challenges in your path - busy schedule, competing priorities, lack of sleep - you made it.

Academic Awards

Academic Awards recognize outstanding achievement, inspire and motivate students, and ensure that they have the financial means to complete their education while striving to be their best. Named academic awards can be created with a contribution of $500 or more.

Memorial or Tribute Giving

Memorial gifts are a thoughtful way to honour someone’s life. Sheridan College Foundation will send a card to the bereaved family acknowledging your kind gesture. Tribute gifts recognize an individual that you would like to honour or may mark a special occasion or milestone in someone’s life while making a difference to the students at Sheridan. The amount of your donation is kept confidential.
