Scholarship Donations

The Communications + Public Relations Foundation is a pan-Canadian organization that unites business, government, academic leaders and public relations practitioners in the advancement of public relations education through scholarships (including the Calgary Legacy Scholarship) awards, lectures and funding of research initiatives that promote ethical practice and professionalism in public communications.

To keep this scholarship going into the next decade, we will need to 'top up' that base fund every year. That's where members like you can make it happen... make it part of your own legacy to the future of your profession.

For the first time ever, your donation to the Communications + Public Relations Foundation can be specifically directed to funding a scholarship for PR students here in Calgary. You will receive a formal tax receipt for your donation. Thanks in advance for your contribution – whatever you can give is SO gratefully received!

To donate, please fill out the Donation Form and send it with your cheque made out to the Communications + Public Relations Foundation, Suite 1515, 743 Widdicombe Hill Blvd., Toronto, Ontario, M9R 4B3.
