Giving Day

Be part of a proud community that rallies each year to transform and elevate student experiences

UCalgary Giving Day returns April 21!

Since its launch in 2017, UCalgary Giving Day has raised more than $6 million to transform our campus and the community. Your Giving Day support creates exceptional student experiences, advances critical research and empowers the next generation of business and community leaders.

At UCalgary Nursing, we aim to inspire and build the next generation of nursing leaders, scientists, innovators and community builders. This Giving Day, join us in supporting three key areas to impact and empower our future nurses: the Nursing Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Enrichment Fund, UCalgary Nursing Indigenous Initiatives and The Faculty of Nursing Impact Fund.

Through these key priority areas, we are paving the way for our future nurses, giving them the tools and skills to respond to an ever-changing world, while ensuring they receive all they need to realize their full potential. Your generosity this Giving Day helps them reach new heights, elevating our campus and our community.
