BU launches ‘Season of Giving’

December 1, 2020

Donate Today and be a part of Giving Tuesday

Giving Tuesday is a global movement and considered the opening day of the giving season. Today, in recognition of Giving Tuesday, we are sharing a few Reasons for Giving and asking you to consider your own. Why do you choose to support Brandon University? Whether your connection to BU is recent, or a fond and familiar memory, your reason matters. It’s the generosity of people like you who bring Brandon University to life, and we are so thankful for that support. Share your Reason for Giving online using the hashtag #GivingTuesdayCa or by email at Advancement@BrandonU.ca

Brandon University is committed to supporting our students through our fundraising initiatives of Teaching & Technology, Accessibility, and our Student Emergency Fund. Learn how donations are making a difference at BU and why your help is needed now, more than ever.

Give to BU

“I want to be able to encourage students to follow their own dreams: to study the topics that send their imaginations soaring and to remember that education is about challenging our minds. It’s about developing critical thought and finding solutions to make this world better for all of us.”

– Ms. Karen Lam, BA ’91


“We are strong believers that all humankind has the right to education. We feel our contribution to education is one of the best ways to help youth. The knowledge or wisdom gained through education would be applied to the welfare of humanity.”

– Mr. Ramjit Singh Mann, on behalf of the Brandon Sikh Community


Covid has afforded lots of time for thinking about lives lived, life’s adventures and of the many blessings and rewarding experiences we have had. When contemplating how to give something back, a financial donation to BU seemed a relatively straight forward thing to do and would also be a way of giving back to Brandon, as the University and the City are so intertwined.”

– Dr. Robert & Mrs. Mary Annis
