Annual Fund

Thanks to the generosity of alumni and the university community (staff/faculty/board members) more than $270,000 was received through our Annual Appeal in 2018/19!

Speaking our truth. Sharing our stories. Supporting our students.

Brandon University’s 2019/20 Annual Appeal  is underway with a renewed focus on supporting our students.

“Students who graduate knowing that others helped them on their journey are more likely to give back when they are in a position to do so. These are the individuals who will support others in achieving their goals.”

–Dr. David Docherty, President and Vice-Chancellor, BU

Student Mental Health

Depression and anxiety are the most common health issues reported by BU students. For many students, university years are the first time that they are faced with new responsibilities and challenges, while also adapting to an entirely different environment. These significant lifestyle changes can hamper a student’s ability to focus on their studies.

Ensuring that our students have the support they need is extremely important. Help us fund updated mental health training, student resources and initiatives such as our Peer Wellness Program.

Indigenous Student Success

Thirteen per cent of Brandon University students identify as Indigenous and that number continues to grow as we move forward with the implementation of our Indigenization Strategy. Indigenous student success continues to be a pillar of our institutional identity. Your gift will help build a brighter future for our students and our communities.

Scholarships & Bursaries

Student awards reward academic achievement, assist students in need and, by lessening the requirement to work, can provide students with increased time for studying and student engagement on campus.

By creating your own award, contributing to an established fund or supporting our general Scholarships and Bursaries Fund you can take pride in knowing that your gift is helping to shape the leaders of tomorrow.
