Passion is Built in Brandon

When you make a gift to Brandon University, you are investing in our students’ passion for knowledge and their passion to succeed.

The best gift you can give is to the area of greatest need. These undesignated gifts allow the University to use the funds strategically when and where they are needed most, for our most essential needs.

Or, you can pick YOUR passion, by choosing where to direct your gift. By investing in a faculty, school, or other area of interest, you are making a significant impact on our students and programs.

“Scholarships and awards have had a tremendous positive impact on my life. They have been a great motivation and helped to nurture my passion for learning and pursuing further education. The generosity and support is truly a blessing, I feel so grateful to be a student at a University with so many supporters rooting for the success of its students, and opening opportunities for us, both during our degree and afterwards.”
