About us

But, enough about us

Our About us section offers a chance to share a little on what we do, who we do it for, and who makes it all possible. But it’s also the perfect place to make it clear, what we do is not about us. Mohawk Foundation has the honour of working with our generous family of donors, and the college’s amazing students, faculty and staff. So, when we talk “About us” we mean all of us. With student success, program support, and sustainability in mind, we work to introduce dreams to means; to match blueprints with shovels; and, to connect generosity with need.

Through the commitment of our donors, we are able to create important differences in students’ lives with a broad and growing range of scholarships and bursaries. And, with critical partnerships and support for capital campaigns, Mohawk’s world-class, multi-campus facilities grow with gleaming examples of architecture, featuring thoughtful learning environments, brilliantly outfitted with up-to-the-moment equipment and technology.

But, enough about us.

What we do

Supporting students. Engaging partners. Transforming lives.

Guided by the Foundation’s values of respect, accountability, innovation and service excellence, we foster a culture of support and opportunity for students by engaging our donors and partners in life-transforming initiatives.

The Foundation works closely with student groups, faculties and departments throughout the college to understand needs, goals and dreams.

We help generate funding for scholarships and bursaries that support students in need.

Working with community partners and teams throughout the college, Mohawk Foundation helps ensure our campuses, infrastructure, facilities and equipment are all at a standard to help our students thrive. Mohawk Foundation welcomes all interest and new contributors.
