College Recovery Fund

All aspects of Renison University College have been effected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Renison has implemented the Work-Sharing program, temporary lay-offs and other emergency measures in an effort to mitigate lost revenues that have resulted from the global pandemic. This Fund will be used to offset our current operating costs in an effort to assist in Renison’s financial recovery. This is a temporary Fund which will be discontinued when the current financial crisis has been averted and the College’s recovery is secured.

Student Urgent Needs Bursary

Now being used primarily to support students with financial need as a direct result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Renison Annual Fund Fund

Renison University College was founded under the motto, One Sky Over All. This phrase has evolved over the years to encompass all that we do. Renison believes deeply in contributing to a world in which social justice, diversity and equity are not aspirations, but realities. Our programs reflect this view. We believe that barriers exist where ignorance and misunderstanding prevails. We aim to collapse those barriers through programs that improve our understanding of diverse languages and cultures, social and economic environments, and questions related to gender, spirituality and a shared sense of belonging. Your support of Renison’s Annual Fund allows us to continue this mission.

The Maple Leaf Fund

The newly created Maple Leaf Fund supports refugees in learning English as a second language so they can qualify to re-enter into their previous studies and/or career path which was lost to them while fleeing their home country.
