What donors are saying in 2020

As a former member of UCC's staff, I used to observe that the Trades and Technology programs did not receive the support that many degree programs enjoyed. The graduates are critical members of our Society and deserve our full support. Anonymous

While teaching at TRU I noticed how First Nation peoples were underrepresented within the student body. Since I believe that education is the fundamental cornerstone to a strong nation and a healthy community, and for that reason, I decided to do my small part to encourage and support any First Nation student wishing to continue their education at the post secondary level by creating the JD GOWS award for aboriginal students wishing to pursue a career in science and by donating to the TRU Day of Giving.

I created this award for students who cherish the value of contributing to community through volunteerism and strive to make service a part of their learning experiences at TRU. I also created this award with the hope that more faculty across campus find ways to engage TRU students in community and service-learning curriculum. Wendy Krauza
As both an Alumni and Faculty member, whose daughter has benefitted from several TRU scholarship and bursaries, I feel it is very important to pay it forward! Christine Petersen
Supporting TRU triggers a ripple effect that will continue to positively impact lives. With a facility like the new Nursing & Population Health Building, the impact is immense. The lives of students, faculty and staff are just the beginning. The impact on patients and families that they will care for or assist is immense. Anonymous
