FRIENDS of VRTA Scholarship & Bursaries

To assist young adults to enter university programs to become teachers or to study gerontology or geriatric nursing,we have founded a charitable organization, called the "Friends of VRTA Scholarship and Bursary Fund". This fund is under the umbrella of the R.R. Smith Memorial Fund Foundation  and hosted by the VanCity Credit Union. The fund was generously initiated by an anonymous $1000.00 donation in June but we need $10,000.00 to start the fund earning interest that can be given to deserving UBC and SFU students 

Can you donate? If you wish to make an income-tax receipt-able donation, please contact Friends of VRTA at or or phone 604 873-0568. Cheques can be made out to R.R. Smith Memorial Fund Foundation and mailed to Dave Ellis, 2086 Newport Avenue, Vancouver, BC V5P 2H8
