Douglas College Foundation hosted a donor appreciation event on October 28, 2019 at the David Lam Campus in Coquitlam BC.

Cecilia Piano CPA CGA represented the CPABC Burnaby/New Westminster Chapter and had the opportunity to connect with many scholarship recipients.

The chapter has recently funded a new award for an accounting student concentrating in the data analytics program.  The first award will be made in the Spring of 2020.

In 2018/19, donors gifted $2.2 million to support over 1,850 Douglas College students through scholarships, awards and bursaries.  These funds allow students to explore and discover new passions, strengths and pursue their dreams.
