Membership in the Order of the Sheaf begins automatically when a donor reaches a cumulative gift level of $1,000 or more. Recognition levels are based on a donor’s total contributions to Brandon University.

A.E. McKenzie Legacy Society

The A.E. Mckenzie Legacy Society is named in honour of Dr. Albert Edward McKenzie, the first person to leave a legacy gift to Brandon College. Given at the height of the Depression, his contribution saved the College from certain closure. Since then, many others have generously supported Brandon University through gifts in their will, gifts of life insurance, or through other methods of legacy giving.

We are pleased to recognize the following members of the 2022 A.E. McKenzie Legacy Society.
