Giving to Red Deer Polytechnic 

Red Deer Polytechnic is continually looking at the way we operate – both for the needs of our learners and those of industry – and creating innovative funding models to ensure that every dollar makes a difference for students now and in the future.  The development of Red Deer Polytechnic hinges on significant investment from government, as well as major commitments from community partners, corporations, foundations and gifts from individual donors and philanthropists.  

Your tax deductible, one-time or recurring donation can have a lasting impact on our community. Your commitment can help us establish stable and reliable funding for scholarships, program development, facilities and equipment upgrades, which ensures our learners engage with the most relevant learning experiences and graduate with a high degree of employability. Whether you give to scholarships or an operating endowment, your support makes a real difference for our students. Learn more about the many ways that you can support students, and the ways we would be honoured to recognize your gift.

Sponsorship Opportunities 

Red Deer Polytechnic is proud to collaborate with local businesses to support learners. Our sponsorship packages reflect similar marketing opportunities in our city, but spending your marketing dollars at Red Deer Polytechnic has the added benefit of directly impacting our students by offsetting operating costs, supporting program development and enhancing the facilities and equipment our students learn on. Through traditional advertising, direct engagement with our learners or community event presentation, sponsorship opportunities exist at a number of price points.
