You are changing lives & building community

Students who benefit from your support are making a difference. As they go on to make a difference in the lives of others, you are part of that difference. Supporting education is the best way to multiply your impact in the world.

“I would like to sincerely thank you for your generosity and support. Your impact goes beyond me. By helping me with my tuition and my books, you give me the time to also help others. Scholarships allow me to have 100% focus on school and volunteerism. Thanks to you, I can continue my community involvement while I continue my studies.”

— ROSHAN, Bachelor of Science student, Community Advocate, Special Olympics Volunteer & award winner

“Thank you to all of you who have generously donated to UFV. I’m excited about my future and I know that I wouldn’t be where I am today without your support. I want to use my story and my education to dedicate my life to helping others who have gone through trauma.”

— KIYA, UFV Kinesiology student, coach, mentor, & award winner
