President’s Circle

The Brandon University Foundation President’s Circle is a distinguished donor group that recognizes contributions of $1,000 or more annually towards the enhancement and support of fundamental areas such as faculty and student research, scholarship and bursary support, library acquisitions, campus infrastructure requirements, or generalized needs within a donor’s preferred faculty or department of choice. The width and breadth of President’s Circle support is far reaching, providing our students and campus with the opportunity to achieve their dreams and surpass their goals. President’s Circle members play a lasting role in the ongoing development of all departments on campus including Arts, Science, Athletics, Education, Rural Development, Creative and Fine Arts, Music and Health Studies, as well as unique programming in International Student Activities, Applied Disaster and Emergency Studies and First Nations and Aboriginal Counselling.

A Message from the President

The President’s Circle was named on behalf of the Brandon University President and Brandon University Foundation President to provide a forum for their appreciation of the exemplary commitment that these annual donors have made to the institution. President’s Circle members are a group of people who have given substantial financial support to the University. These people are among the most dedicated supporters of University life and can be seen at various sporting events, concerts and lectures throughout the year. Their contributions visibly enhance the University’s infrastructure, purchase much-needed new equipment, and create scholarships and bursaries that attract and retain students, staff and faculty. All of us at Brandon University thank you for your support, encouragement and commitment. We look forward to including you, your family, or a loved one in this esteemed group.
