Why Give?

This is your university

UFV was built for the community by the community. And at its heart are the same core values that are so important to the unique Fraser Valley region — family, community, diversity, hard work and entrepreneurship.

And only with the support of its community can UFV continue to grow as a source of quality education in the Fraser Valley. The support of our friends — businesses, individuals, foundations, and organizations — helps more students change their lives through education at UFV.

Multiply your impact

By joining UFV’s community of donors, you make a lasting impact on the lives of students and the Fraser Valley as a whole. Your support helps educate the nurses, tradespeople, business leaders and social service providers of tomorrow. As they go on to make a difference in the lives of others, locally and beyond, you are a part of that difference. Supporting education is the best way to multiply your impact in the world. And what better place to start than right here in your own community.

How your support helps students

Your support makes a real difference in the lives of students. We are so grateful to students Becky, Kiya and Randi for allowing us to share their stories with you.
