Thank you to everyone who joined our UBC Giving Day Celebration events on April 5. It was a beautiful sunny day at both campuses, and we had an incredible time celebrating our donor community and the impact of philanthropy at UBC with you! Here are a few highlights from our campus events.
Over 1,000 students, faculty and staff joined the UBC Giving Day Celebration at UBC Vancouver. With their help, $3,000 was unlocked for UBC Vancouver causes through our What’s Your Cause? challenge. Students also helped us to personally thank over 300 donors by writing thank you cards. These cards will be shared with Giving Day donors.
Over 300 UBC Okanagan students, faculty and staff helped to celebrate UBC Giving Day. Attendees were asked to vote for their favourite UBC Okanagan fund, and we’re excited to share that the winner was UBCO Emergency First Response Team who will receive $1,000 in funds.
