Giving to Olds College

At Olds College we have been reaching beyond for over a century. Vision and innovation have always formed the foundation of our world-class applied education and research programs. That's five generations of prairie pride, grit and ingenuity helping the backbone of Alberta remain strong and vital.

From our rural and agriculture roots, Olds College emulates the traits that make a good farmer:

  • Entrepreneurship
  • Perseverance
  • willingness to learn and try new things
  • ability to handle diversity
  • constantly evaluating our environment.

Olds College receives 54% of its funding from the government, 14% from student tuition, and 32% from other sources. Thanks to our industry partners, alumni, and friends of the College who invest in us, we are able to deliver an exceptional educational experience.   

Our track record for fiscal responsibility and ability to creatively solve problems makes Olds College a great place to invest in.
