Communities and Charities

The Blanche Macdonald Centre believes in making a commitment to the community. We have fostered extensive relationships with numerous charities, community organizations, schools, universities, companies and independent artists. Our extensive contribution allows us to assist many individuals and organizations in their creative and charitable endeavours.

Our involvement provides our students and graduates with additional hands on training, networking skills and most of all, an enriching personal experience with charity and the arts. The College participates in several hundred volunteer and community based activities each year.

The Lipstick Project

"As a Vancouver-based nonprofit, The Lipstick Project (TLP) is incredibly fortunate to have students from BMC join our volunteer teams. Given the delicate nature of our work with patients and families in and from hospitals, hospices, and other healthcare organizations, BMC students have consistently shown to be skilled, passionate, and very professional. Furthermore, they display a strong sense of care and community that TLP upholds. Staff and faculty at BMC and CurliQue including Simona, Gina, Jaylene, and Teresa have been a true pleasure to work with. We feel very fortunate to have their encouragement and full support for our work and vision. TLP is thrilled to be able to provide opportunities for our volunteers to use and practice their existing skills in a community setting - we very much value our partnership with BMC and look forward to many more fun and inspiring opportunities."

- Holly Chan, BMC graduate and Director of Community Partnerships, TLP

Spinal Cord Injury BC - Women's Tea

Red Carpet Community! So lovely seeing our Blanche Macdonald Makeup team at the 2014 Spinal Cord Injury BC Women’s Tea, where they pampered and prepped this beautiful group of ladies for their Oscar’s themed high tea (and fabulous boa-filled red carpet photoshoot)! It's such an honor working with this organization, and always a total blast.

"Blanche Macdonald Centre grads are the bomb diggity. Can't thank them enough!" -SCI BC
