Congratulations! Thank you for taking the first step in helping continue the cycle of bringing the best and brightest to the hospitality and foodservice industry. Let’s get started.
Sponsor Scholarship Program:
The Sponsored Scholarship Program is designed for donations of $1,000 and more. These scholarships are donated to on an annual basis and are renewed each year.
All Scholarship Sponsors will be listed within our website and also in each of our event programs. Our Scholarship Sponsors will also be invited to our annual Scholarship Awards Ceremony. For donations less than $1,000 please see our Group Sponsored Scholarship Section below.
If you were thinking of giving a much larger donation than mentioned above, we would like to offer you yet another alternative – a Financial Endowment
A financial endowment is a donation of money (or property) to a nonprofit or charitable organization for the ongoing support of that organization. Typically the endowment is structured so that the principal amount is kept intact while the investment income is available for use, or part of the principal is released each year, which allows for the donation to have an impact over a longer period than if it were spent all at once.
The Canadian Hospitality Foundation is a registered charity. The foundation is audited annually by Grant Thornton and all funds are managed by BMO Nesbitt Burns.
If you are interested in providing an endowment to the Canadian Hospitality Foundation while you are living or through your will, please contact the foundation office directly at 416-363-3401 and speak with Katrin Zeuner.
If you were thinking of making a smaller donation, we would like to offer you an alternative solution – our Group Sponsored Scholarship Program.
Group Sponsored Scholarship Program:
Please provide us with the value of the donation that you would like to create:
Value (less than $1,000)
Your donation will be brought together with other donors to provide a $1,000 scholarship within the category selected.
Please note that The Canadian Hospitality Foundation takes the selection of the participating schools under much consideration and to ensure that we have the appropriate support funding for all the participating schools across Canada, the Canadian Hospitality Foundation reserves the right to allocate the Sponsored Scholarships. All special requests will be taken under consideration.
All Sponsored Scholarship donations made after April 1st will be awarded the following year.
Please be advised that a fee is charged to cover the costs of administering a scholarship from start to finish:
Sponsored Scholarship Program – $100
Group Sponsored Scholarship Program – proportionate percentage of donation towards scholarship to fee of $100 (ie. If you donate $50 towards a $1,000 scholarship you will be charged 5% of the administrative fee – $50 is 5% of $1,000 costing a $5 administrative fee)
