Building the Leaders of Tomorrow
The generosity of alumni and friends enhances our campus and enriches our student experience. Your donation can be made in support of the area of greatest need, or directed specifically to a particular area of interest. The pledge form below outlines several areas that would greatly benefit from your support, three of which are outlined in greater detail below.
Indigenous Student Success
Indigenous student success is a pillar of our institutional identity at BU and we are committed to providing cultural opportunities outside the classroom to celebrate the diversity of Indigenous cultures. A collection of events, resources, and commemorative occasions aim to bring our community together to learn from one another and to honor the teachings of our Knowledge Keepers and Elders.
Gifts to Indigenous Student Success will support initiatives such as Indigenous Excellence Celebrations, the BU Teaching House and the Indigenization of our campus. Ongoing projects such as the creation of a Medicine Garden or land- based culture camps will help to build a culture of respect and reconciliation.
Student Emergency Fund
Challenges such as the Covid 19 pandemic, natural disasters, or an unexpected crisis can have devastating effects on students and access to financial assistance in times of need can be crucial to their academic success. The Student Emergency Fund helps students when they need it the most.
Scholarships & Bursaries
Student awards acknowledge academic achievement, assist students in need, and strengthen student recruitment and retention. Whether you choose to donate to an existing fund, our general scholarships and bursaries fund, or create a new award, your gift will have a significant impact on our students.
“There’s no better feeling than knowing you have changed the life of a student. It’s the reason so many of our alumni and donors give so generously to support the Brandon University mission.”
— BU President, Dr. David Docherty
