Students Helping Students
The Class Gift program brings together UNBC students, their friends and family, plus members of the community, to make philanthropic gifts in support of future students.
Successes To Date
Kick-Off March 9
During this 3 hour event, students and employees enjoyed fun activities, free pizza, and awesome prizes. Plus 38 generous people made donations for the Graduating Class Gift Bursary. With these gifts we earned our first $1,000 challenge reward!
Grad Fair March 21
During this event, graduating students voted for the class song, found out next steps towards graduation, plus 15 more students made their gifts. We are well on our way to earning our second challenge reward.

Summary of Last Year's Success
Participation was the key! Because we had a challenge donor providing additional funds based on our class participation, every gift no matter what the size had a real impact on how many fellow students we were able to provide bursaries for.
Thanks to everyone who donated to the 2016 Class Gift, we gave out SIX $1,000 bursaries in the fall!
