Kick-off to National Philanthropy Awareness Week
National Philanthropy Week is a country-wide celebration of the positive impact that countless charities and their donors and volunteers have on Canada and our world.
Shining a light on our supporters in the community
At the University of Calgary, National Philanthropy Awareness Week is another opportunity to shine a spotlight on a few of the thousands of gifts of time, treasure and talent that our friends, alumni and supporters give to elevate students, research and, ultimately, the health and happiness of the wider community.
Philanthropically speaking, it’s been a banner year at UCalgary. In addition to the recent transformative gifts behind major Energize campaign initiatives such as the Hunter Hub for Entrepreneurial Thinking and the innovative new Bachelor of Science in Engineering and Bachelor of Commerce combined degree, meaningful gifts in every size have sparked change across campus and throughout this city.
