Dear UBC community members,
As UBC alumni and donors, we are particularly pleased to serve as Campaign Co-Chairs for the start an evolution alumni engagement and fundraising campaign.
It has been a full year since the campaign's public launch and the momentum has continued to build. In our first public year, we have already engaged more than 35,000 alumni and raised $226 million for students, research and community partnerships. This engagement and philanthropic support is making exciting initiatives possible, like UBC's new, state-of-the-art Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences Building, which opened recently. We are also proud to share with you the following stories about how our alumni and donors are getting involved with the University and changing our world.
We hope that you are inspired, as we are, by these stories, as there is still a long way to go. Our campaign goals are ambitious. If you would like to get involved, please visit startanevolution.ca, where you will find many compelling projects that need your involvement. We urge you to join us on this journey and look forward to updating you on the campaign in the months and years ahead.
