Our History

Supporting students since 2008

Founded in 2008, The Cmolik Foundation helps students across BC access educational opportunities that shape their career aspirations and possibilities with the support of dedicated educators, mentors, sponsors and volunteers.


Facilitating access to higher education

Every year, we award up to 20 scholarships to BC students who demonstrate a good work ethic and tenacity in achieving their academic and social goals—who, without our support, may not have the means to attend a post-secondary institution. Each scholarship is a maximum of $40,000 paid over five years.

Field Trips

Expanding their horizons

Expanding Horizons takes students attending a Surrey inner-city elementary school on extraordinary field trips every year. Partnering with Simon Fraser University’s Surrey campus, we also provide summer day camps for these students, exposing them to career experiences that inspire interest in higher learning.


This is a family. Everyone here is looking to support you so that you can achieve your goals. Use the support TCF provides and everything will be alright!”


Knowing that so many people believe in me and want me to succeed makes me work harder and know how fortunate I am to be part of this family.


TCF has helped me grow into a strong, accomplished individual, inspiring me to achieve the goals I set my mind to, give back to my community, and appreciate the kindness of those around me.
