Leaders. Innovators. Trailblazers. Mentors.

Those are the people your annual giving gifts support. Whether it’s supporting the Superfund, a faculty or department, our libraries, or one of our student athletes, each gift is a catalyst for change. Your gift is the spark that ignites great things at the University of Calgary.

When you give to our Annual Giving appeals you can support any area at the University. You can also support our institutional annual fund – the Superfund. When you donate to the Superfund you are supporting 5 critical areas1 at the university:

  • Scholarships & Bursaries
  • Student Space Improvements
  • Libraries
  • Athletics
  • Areas of Greatest Need

Strength in numbers

Your donations today will plant the seeds of greatness for tomorrow. Each gift - no matter what size - sends a message to our students, to our faculty, and to our researchers that you believe in them, and the work that they are doing. And together, we can achieve so much more than any one of us alone. Whether it is a one-time gift, a monthly donation, or an annual gift - every gift is a vote of confidence in the university. 

Double (or even triple) your impact
