Giving Day is a 24-hour fundraising event aimed at bringing communities together, at our Vancouver and Okanagan campuses and beyond, in support of causes that will make a difference in the world. Last year, together we raised over $500,000 for UBC causes. This year, we’re aiming even higher – and we can only do it with your help.

Making a gift is not the only way to be part of UBC Giving Day! You can support UBC Giving Day by sharing it with your network. Ambassadors like you are instrumental in boosting awareness, spreading excitement and increasing awareness of Giving Day on social networks.

On this page, you’ll find the resources you need to help stop time on April 5 and make UBC Giving Day 2023 a success.
