Support Red Deer Polytechnic 

No matter the size of your gift, your support for Red Deer Polytechnic creates opportunities. 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.  

Together, let’s create a bold future for Red Deer Polytechnic. Make your gift today. 


The RDP Foundation 

The RDP Foundation was established in 1982 to provide our supporters the opportunity to impact learners in many ways.  The goals of the  Foundation are to: 

  • Serve as the fundraising arm of the Polytechnic 
  • Attract increased financial support for our learners and programs 
  • Cultivate a committed volunteer base 

As Red Deer Polytechnic continues to grow, the continued support of our donors and volunteers is essential to maximizing the unique potential that lies ahead. It is with this support from our communities that our institution will continue to influence the growth and prosperity of our region. We are excited to continue building the relationships and partnerships that have made this bright future possible. 

The RDP Foundation Board is made up of volunteers from our community.  To get involved with the Foundation Board, email giving@rdpolytech.ca or call 403.342.3574.
