History of the Scholarship

In 2009 a group of recent Alumni saw the upcoming 2010 Vancouver Olympics as an opportunity to rent the Fraternity house due to it’s proximity to the UBC Ice Hockey Rink, an Olympic Venue. Over the coming year they worked to negotiate the best deal while coordinating with the active chapter.

The outcome was relocation money for active members, facility management employment for brothers and the profits were invested with the Vancouver Foundation, creating a long term scholarship. The scholarship is the only tax deductible method of donating to the BC Chapter.

Every year, two Scholarships are provided to current University Students, the Kent Parker Leadership Scholarship and the Alpha Delta Phi Community Service Award, along with the Alpha Delta Phi Young Leader Award, for a recent high school graduate attending UBC.

The scholarship committee administers the awards, striving to recognise community and academic excellence. The Scholarship Committee is a sub group of the Alpha Delta Phi Alumni Association.

The funds are provided in the form of a Certificate of Registration from the Vancouver Foundation with the assistance of the University of British Columbia to be applied against the students tuition. Letting our best leaders do what they do best, lead.

Fund Management (Vancouver FoundatIon)  

In 2010 the Alpha Delta Phi Alumni Association selected the Vancouver Foundation to manage our endowment funds. The Foundation is Canada's largest community foundation and has over 70 years of experience. Over the past 5+ years working with the Vancouver Foundation the scholarship committee has found the process of both growing the fund and issuing scholarships to be very easy. With our funds effectively managed, and annual allotments predetermined the committee can focus on selected the best applicants. 

Donations

Every year we receive hundreds of dollars in donations from Alpha Delta Phi Alumni helping us increase the value of our annual scholarships. Your donation goes directly to the endowment principal, and the scholarship committee maintains the principal by only allocating a sustainable amount, 4% annually. 

If you would like to make a donation or a planned monthly donation, click below and follow the steps on our custom Vancouver Foundation page. All donations to the 2010 Endowment Fund are tax deductible. 

2010 Club

The 2010 Club, named after the year in which the endowment was created is a monthly giving program. We hope to one day  award three FULL Tuition scholarships to young leaders attending UBC, and are building our endowment 20 dollars at a time ($20.10/month). Anyone can register by clicking on the "2010 Endowment Donation Webpage" above. At year end the Vancouver Foundation provides a tax deductible slip for all donations made throughout the calendar year. The funds go directly into the principal helping the scholarship committee award more funds to deserving young leaders every year. 

Monthly donations are a key way to help grow our fund long term and as a member you will receive an invite to the scholarship presentation ceremony held annually in Vancouver in September.
