About the Foundation

The Dawson College Foundation was established in 2006 as a source of support for public education. The Dawson College Foundation provides support to Dawson students through the Dawson Students in Need Fund, the College’s Awards and Scholarships Program, and by funding innovative initiatives that enrich every Dawson student’s life.

Dawson College plays a vital part of the Montreal community, educating and preparing thousands of people for the next phase of their lives, be it university or the workplace.

At Dawson, good students make for good citizens.

For 50 years, we have stood firm in our belief that every student deserves a chance, and our dedicated faculty and staff remain committed to providing a rich education both in and out of the classroom. Our philosophy is to educate the student as a whole person, so that our graduates are not only good students, they are good citizens.

The Dawson experience includes para-academic activities that contribute to a full education.

As Dawson College develops and grows, however, traditional government funding falls short. The Dawson Foundation exists to assure access to an enriched learning experience. The Foundation looks to support from the internal and external community to supplement resources so that no valid project goes unfunded.
