Class Gift

Congratulations Class of 2018 on reaching this important milestone!

Congratulations on your achievement and welcome to the UFV Alumni Association. You are joining a community of change-makers, risk-takers, and life-savers who are making a difference at home and abroad.

Take a moment to thank your supporters: family members, instructors, friends, and the donors who helped you achieve your goals.

As you graduate, please encourage those supporters to celebrate your graduation by making a donation of $20.18 in your honour to the Class of 2018 campaign. Their gift will be matched by your UFV Alumni Association. And when you are able to, please consider paying it forward by making a donation to student awards at UFV. These donations will support future students who follow in your footsteps.

Alumni celebrating a milestone graduation anniversary support future students, too!

Grads from 2013, 2008, and 2003 – did you receive a scholarship or bursary while a student at UFV? If you didn’t – could you have benefited from one? In celebration of your 5, 10 and 15 UFV graduation anniversary, will you make a donation to support future UFV Alumni? You can make it possible for more students to receive this important funding support.

You have become the change-makers, risk-takers, and life-savers making a difference in our communities now. Grads like you can make a difference for students like Adam:

“ Thank you so much for the bursary! I wouldn’t have survived if it wasn’t for you. When I graduate, I hope I can—like you—pass along the kindness to others.”

—Adam, UFV Bursary Recipient

UFV Alumni Association bursaries and leadership awards make a world of difference for students struggling to make ends meet. When combined with others, your gift has a tremendous impact and can help more students achieve their graduation day. Here are 10 reasons to support the Class of 2018 by donating $20.18 or $201.80 or even $2,018.00.

1. Honour what grads love about UFV.
Now is your chance to pay tribute to that special instructor, class or student activity that changed a grad’s life forever.
2. Commemorate one of the most important journeys of a grad’s life.
You can celebrate their UFV journey – from Weeks of Welcome to Convocation, grads have a lot to celebrate.
3. Give a little to change a lot.
Your gift will be matched by the UFV Alumni Association, up to $2,018 and will help even more students!
4. Ensure UFV is one of the best undergraduate universities in Canada.
Alumni giving positively impacts national rankings and, in return, protects and enhances the value of grads’ credentials.
5. Lead the way for future Alumni.
You can help ensure that current students and those studying at UFV for years to come can create their own unique experiences.
6. It all adds up!
If a supporter of every graduate from the Class of 2018 makes a donation of $20.18, we could raise over $50,000! This would provide enough funding for four additional students to receive bursaries each and every year going forward. Just imagine how many students could be supported if each alumni celebrating a milestone anniversary donated too?
7. It’s fun to give!
As a Class of 2018 donor, you will be invited to donor events and networking opportunities throughout the year.
8. Make a statement.
Lead by example – let’s create a real legacy together!
9. Inspire a culture of philanthropy at UFV.
Inspire future graduating classes, other alumni, parents, faculty and staff with your generosity to our Class Gift campaign. Help build an upswell in support for students.
10. Leave your mark.
Whatever the reason, giving a Class of 2018 Gift is the perfect way to leave your mark at the university – and a wonderful way to celebrate those who begin their new, important role as a proud UFV alumna/alumnus.
