The tradition of legacy giving at UBC is long and inspiring. Dr. Alexander Monro was instrumental in establishing UBC’s medical school through a gift in his will in 1932. Ever since, legacy gifts and bequests have enriched and strengthened our ability to provide students and faculty with the best possible resources and conditions for learning and research.
The UBC Heritage Circle was established in 1993 to involve and recognize people who have included a gift to UBC in their estate plans. Members of the Heritage Circle participate in the life of the university, attending special activities that highlight the intellectual and cultural riches on campuses in Vancouver and Kelowna. If you have included UBC in your estate plan, please let us know so we may recognize your contribution and invite you to become a member of the UBC Heritage Circle.
