Dear members of the UBC community,
In 2017, UBC launched the Blue & Gold Campaign for Students, with the goal of raising $100 million in student support over three years. Since then, thousands of alumni, donors, faculty and staff have come together to support UBC students—making a difference in their lives by helping them to achieve their goals and change our world.
For this spring’s Faculty and Staff Appeal, the UBC Faculty and Staff Giving Advisory Committee is inviting you to make a donation to the Blue & Gold Bursary, and I encourage you to support our students. UBC is once again offering to match your gift*—meaning your donation will have double the impact.
UBC students are extraordinarily talented, and all have the potential to play a role in shaping a better future, but some need your help. Many students would not be at UBC without the generosity of donors—financial support has made the dream of a university education possible.
I believe there is no more transformational gift than an investment in the potential of a student. Our faculty and staff already give so much to UBC. The university couldn’t exist without you. Now, with a matched gift to the Blue & Gold Bursary, you can help a student do extraordinary things.
Students are our future. Your donation will not just help students, but all the people their lives will impact because of their education. And remember—UBC will match your gift, so you will have double the impact.
Change their world, so they can change ours.
Thank you and best wishes,
Professor Santa J. Ono
President and Vice-Chancellor
*New gifts up to $50,000 per donor
