Coast Capital Savings is committed to helping young people acquire the vital educational and career skills needed to become successful leaders and contributors to society.
In 2008, Coast Capital donated a whopping $1 million toward Kwantlen library upgrades and the advancement of educational opportunities for Kwantlen students.
“Community investment is a cornerstone of our organization,” said Wendy Lachance, Director, Community Leadership, Coast Capital Savings. “We’re always looking for like-minded organizations focused on building stronger communities, and in Kwantlen Polytechnic University, we found that. Anyone considering supporting Kwantlen should know that their investment will ultimately contribute to the well-being of our local communities and that is definitely worth supporting.”
With a joint mission to create an exceptional undergraduate learning environment that is committed to preparing learners for leadership, service and success, the partnership includes opportunities for the university’s faculty and Coast Capital Savings to work together in knowledge sharing, research, talent recruitment, as well as continuing and co-op education programs.
“Kwantlen Polytechnic University champions the critical importance of higher education and is helping develop our community’s next generation of leaders,” added Lachance. “Coast Capital Savings shares their goals and is pleased as punch to be a partner in helping create better opportunities for youth and young people in BC.”
