Briercrest Nation

The purpose of Briercrest Athletics is to “go for gold” as a premier athletic program in Canada (Isaiah 60:17). Our focus is the whole-person development of our student athletes: graduating men and women who model the character and competencies of Jesus Christ in all areas of life.

Our focus with you, our valued alumni, friends, and partners, is to stand united as Clippers, committed to walking alongside the present members and working together to build the future of Briercrest Athletics.

We need our alumni, friends, and partners to grab hold of the vision that God has provided for Briercrest Athletics and get actively involved in helping us develop Total Champions.

There are three ways for you to become involved as a Nation Investor:

  • Gold level citizenship ($3000+ /yr)
  • Navy level citizenship ($1500-$3000)
  • White level citizenship (<$1500)

Whether you're a gold, navy, or white level citizen of the Nation, you are making a significant contribution to advancing the purpose and vision of Briercrest Athletics. Your contribution will go toward several things:

  1. Scholarships for the next generation of Briercrest student-athletes
  2. Funding exhibition play in preparation for league competition
  3. Upgrading our athletic facilities

You are a builder of the future of Briercrest Athletics. There are many other ways that you can become a citizen of the Nation. We are looking for alumni, friends, and partners who can help us in the following areas:

  • Nation recruiters: Citizens who will help us recruit the next generation of student-athletes.
  • Nation employers: Citizens who can provide summer employment, internships, and entry-level and/or career positions for grads and upcoming grads.
  • Nation connectors: Citizens who can connect us to other alumni or corporate sponsors or who can open doors to strategic relationships that will help advance the purpose of Briercrest Athletics.

Pay the Gift Card Way

Briercrest Athletics' reintroduction of “Pay the Gift Card Way” is a great way to help feed and fuel the Briercrest Nation.

“Pay the Gift Card Way” is a Community Charity Services Loyalty Funding program that allows you to purchase a set amount of gift cards to Canadian grocery stores and donate a percentage of that money go directly to Briercrest Athletics. Through “Pay the Gift Card Way,” donors can raise money for Briercrest Athletics without spending any additional money from their household budget. Instead of paying $150 for groceries with a credit card, donors may simply buy $150 of gift cards and use them for groceries while supporting Briercrest Athletics.

To become a Loyalty Funding Client, simply provide your donor information and mark "Briercrest College" as your organization.

Four key features of this service:

  • All orders are guaranteed through Canada Post. If packages are lost in the mail, they will be replaced.
  • Gift cards are mailed directly to participant’s home.
  • CCS offers credit card as a payment method.  This lowers the contribution, but allows you to pay with credit card and collect reward/air mile points. Briercrest receives a 3% donation on groceries and 2% on gas when using automatic bank withdrawal, and 1.5% and 1% donation respectively when using credit card.
  • CCS offers a charitable tax receipt to participants.

Being part of the Briercrest volleyball team was where I built some of the closest relationships. From training hard and achieving success to working through tough losses, you develop friendships that couldn't be made anywhere else.
