Meet Kit Caudron-Robinson

Kit is Cree/Metis from Driftpile First Nation in northern Alberta. He is in the University Transfer program, focusing on Social Work. His long term goal is to complete the Indigenous Law program at the University of Victoria. Kit came to Camosun because he was inspired by his older sister whom he watched carefully as she graduated with her Law degree and he saw that education could be the tool to effect change in the world around him. Kit says, “I can affect real and positive change in the communities around me by first taking the steps to advance myself and continuing to work hard to achieve my goals. I have an opportunity to create something and I intend to leave something better for the next generation.

Employer matching

Many people work for a company or organization that will match their charitable giving. If your employer will donate to match your gifts please let us know and we will make the arrangements.

Planning ahead - Gifts for the future

Tax law and estate planning are complex. Please talk to your financial or legal advisor about the tax benefits, thresholds and appropriateness of these choices for you.

Bequests

Remember Camosun in your will with a bequest of a percentage of your estate or cash, securities, real estate, and other assets. Wills are personal matters, but please let us know if you have named Camosun in your will. We will work with you to ensure your bequest will achieve your intentions.
