Faculty, staff and retiree giving
Together, our faculty, staff and retirees can make a positive impact on the lives of UM students by supporting the Faculty, Staff and Retirees Campaign. Through philanthropic contributions, you can send a powerful message to our students and community that you value their education and future. Support from the University of Manitoba’s internal community shows pride in our university and can inspire others to follow your lead.
Supporting our students
Please consider making this year’s gift to the UM Student Technology Fund which provides students with $500 each to cover the cost of a refurbished laptop or subsidize the purchase of a new computer that meets their needs. A gift to this fund will tackle an immediate need and create a long-term solution for our students. Giving is a personal choice and your support to any area of our community is appreciated and makes a profound difference. If you prefer to make a gift to another fund that’s meaningful to you, please do so.
