About the Foundation

More than half-a-million dollars has been provided by the ASTTBC Foundation since 1990 for post-secondary technology students and for Science, Technology, Engineering & Math (STEM) education activities in British Columbia.

ASTTBC Foundation operates as an independent charitable organization established to receive donations from ASTTBC members and friends, and in turn, to provide support for applied science and technology education and awareness for residents of BC.
