The University of Calgary Legacy Society celebrates donors who want to make a difference beyond their lifetime and leave their mark for future generations.

For the last 50 years an extraordinary community of donors have given more than $40 million to the University of Calgary through legacy gifts. These gifts have funded scholarships and bursaries, contributed to life-changing research and have helped build innovative teaching and learning spaces on our campus. 

By leaving a legacy gift, you will join a group of extraordinary donors who envision a future beyond our lifetime. Membership into the Legacy Society is an opportunity to spark meaningful and lasting change that will inspire generations to come.
