Support UBC on GivingTuesday

To: Faculty, staff and students in Vancouver and the Okanagan

Today is GivingTuesday, please join us in celebrating philanthropy at UBC

Today is GivingTuesday, an international day to highlight the importance of giving back. At UBC, you can find the impact of our supporters everywhere. I invite you to use this global occasion to help us celebrate the contribution of donors, alumni and friends to our campuses — and to the world.

One hundred years ago, UBC opened its doors with few resources and modest ambitions. A century later, empowered by our community, it is a global leader making a lasting and positive difference around the world. Donors and alumni have played a vital role in that — as the amazing success of our recent start an evolution fundraising campaign has shown — and today is the ideal moment to recognize this.

Please help us to celebrate 100 years of donor impact at UBC. Our supporters help make UBC a place where open thinking leads to ideas that change the world, and will empower us to shape the next century. For more information about how to participate, please go to

No matter how you decide to get involved in GivingTuesday, please share your stories on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram with the hashtags #UBCgiving and #GivingTuesdayCA.

Thank you — and have a great GivingTuesday!

Interim President and Vice-Chancellor
