be the catalyst
You can spark meaningful change at the University of Calgary by supporting our annual giving campaign. Not only do annual gifts set in motion a chain of events that keeps the best and brightest on campus, it’s also a direct investment in those with the potential to change our world for the better.
An important element of the Annual Giving program is the University of Calgary Superfund, which is used to fund our most urgent projects. Superfund gifts directly support the university’s most pressing needs in five critical areas:
- Scholarships and bursaries
- Student space improvements
- Emerging priorities
Annual gifts to the Superfund are a vital source of institutional momentum. Student financial aid, faculty development, emerging programs for students, library and technology resources and facilities renovation - these opportunities, and many more, are possible because of unrestricted gifts to the Superfund.
Annual gifts have an immediate impact and allow us to remain flexible and responsive to meet the needs of complex changes throughout the course of the year.
Your participation counts, not just in dollars, but also as a vote of confidence in the university. Each gift – no matter the size – sends a message to our students, faculty and researchers that you believe in their passion, ambition and goals.
One-time gifts, monthly donations and annual gifts are a direct investment in those determined to make a difference and ignite change in our world for the better.
Great cities need great universities, and great universities are built on great philanthropy. Your investment means the University of Calgary can make a difference in the global community today and ensures it will continue to improve for future generations to come!
