Positive Space Endowment
The Postive Space Alliance has opened an endowment account with the VIU Foundation to support an award for a student who displays leadership in raise awareness of diversity in sexual orientation and gender identity, and challenging the patterns of silence that continue to marginalize LGBTQ+ individuals.
Our target is to raise $20,000.00 - donations of any amount will help us get there.
Why Have An Award?
Demonstrates support & provides encouragement to students who are often discouraged by family circumstances from attending a post-secondary institution.
This normalizes being a LGBTQ+ student or ally – it sends the message that LGBTQ+ students are as worthy of financial support and recognition as other students.
It provides visibility for the LGBTQ+ community and their allies on campus.
If you would like to donate, please complete the Donation Form and forward it to the Foundation Office.
