Thanks to donors like you, UBC is able to provide support to thousands of students, improve the teaching and learning environment, stimulate innovative research, and reach out to the wider community. The purpose of giving clubs is to offer us an opportunity to extend our appreciation of your thoughtfulness in making a provision, through your gift, for students, educators and researchers at the University. With your support of scholarship and service, knowledge and discovery, and the physical underpinnings so vital to teaching and learning, you are helping us enrich the experiences of our students, and through them, our community and our world.

Heritage Circle (Planned/Deferred Gifts)
The Heritage Circle was established in 1993 to recognize individuals who have made a provision for UBC in their estate plans. The tradition of legacy giving at UBC is a long and inspiring one; in fact the first gift to UBC was a bequest from Dr. Alexander Monro in 1932. Ever since, legacy gifts and bequests have significantly enriched and strengthened our ability to provide students and faculty with the best possible resources and conditions for learning and research. Members of the Heritage Circle receive invitations to special University events, including the annual Heritage Circle event.
