Today, UBC is announcing our new Blue & Gold Campaign for Students, with the goal of raising $100 million in student support over three years – the largest fundraising campaign for students in UBC history! The awards will support students in need, students from under-represented communities, leadership-based awards and combinations of these.

To get thing started, UBC will provide up to $5 million in matching funds for new endowed gifts to select Blue & Gold Campaign priorities, including the Blue & Gold Bursaries, where every dollar will provide talented students with the tools they need to create lasting and meaningful change.

Join me today – or even tomorrow on Giving Tuesday – to support UBC’s new Blue & Gold Campaign for Students at:

Change their world, so they can change ours.

President and Vice-Chancellor
