#UFVGives — Join the #GivingTuesdayCA Movement!

Giving Tuesday marks the start of the giving season. It immediately follows the days of intense consumerism, Black Friday and Cyber Monday, and is all about helping our community by giving back and giving forward. 

UFV students and alumni contribute to our region’s economic and social well-being. Giving Tuesday is all about helping students succeed in their education and empowering them to make that difference.

Make a difference and help a student achieve their dreams. Donate now!

Alumni Giving | Class of 2017 Giving | Faculty and Staff Giving



UFV student Randi shares how funding she received from the Faculty and Staff Bursary has helped her succeed in school. As a Social Work student, she hopes to make a difference by helping others in her community when she graduates. Bursaries and scholarships help students from all walks of life achieve their dreams. For a student who could not attend without support, your generosity could change the course of his or her entire life.


UFV Alumni Giving | Join your Alumni Board members in supporting UFV students

Alumni Association Board members donate to support UFV Students. Join them on Giving Tuesday and help propel Alumni giving to a whole new level at UFV. Alumni are an integral part of the UFV community — whether it’s through mentoring, staying connected to the university, or impacting students through financial support.

The Alumni Association has set a goal to grow the UFV Alumni Changing Lives, Building Community Endowment Bursary to $100,000. At this level, the annual interest will fund 4 awards of $1,000 each to students in financial need.

“As a co-founder and first Chair of the UFV Alumni Association, starting the Alumni Giving Back Bursary Endowment was extremely important to me. I’m forever grateful for the scholarships and bursaries that helped me during my post-secondary educational journey.  I am now a long-time alumnus of UFV and in a position to give back to help tomorrow’s leaders in all fields of study. All Alumni can support this endowment as an ongoing legacy to help the next generation of students achieve their education goals and then go out and change the world for the better.” — Stacey Irwin
