Honouring a leadership legacy through endowed student support

Dan Patterson, the dynamic, visionary and tireless leader of Niagara College for 25 years, concluded his tenure as president in February 2020. To honour his legacy as the fifth president of Niagara College, we’ve launched a special fundraising campaign that supports student success.

Supporting Students: We can do so much more

Financial support from alumni, friends, and corporations is critical to helping students meet their potential. Niagara College is grateful to our many generous and loyal donors who support our students by donating to scholarships and bursaries.

But the need continues to grow. Currently Niagara College offers one scholarship or bursary for every 10 students. We know we need to do more. We know there continues to be many people in our region who are unable to pursue a college education due to insufficient financial resources.

The Dan Patterson Legacy Fund will help make education more accessible by supporting students in financial need, provide merit-based scholarships to continue to attract and retain the best and brightest, and support students in our Be World Ready program to participate in a semester exchange, summer institute or international field study.

Help a student achieve their dreams by donating today to the Dan Patterson Legacy Fund.
