Welcome Donors!

Giving Tuesday banner


Giving Tuesday has become a rallying point for donors to support their favourite initiatives at VIU. We are encouraging the VIU community to come together again to support the causes that are important to you!

Our campaign will be running from November 16th until midnight on December 1st. When you give on Giving Tuesday your gift will go further!

Check out our dedicated fundraisers on the AIM Together crowdfunding platform.

Over the past two years, the Imagine VIU campaign raised $7.3 million in support of our students and transformed the Nanaimo VIU campus:

  • We constructed the new Dr. Ralph Nilson Centre for Health and Science, the new Windsor Plywood Trades Discovery Centre, and the District Geo-Exchange Energy System
  • We created over $2M worth of new student scholarships, awards, and bursaries
  • We acquired almost $2M worth of new equipment and program support

We could not have done it without the help of our community partners like Windsor Plywood, Island Savings, Nanaimo Port Authority, Harbourview Volkswagen, the VIU Alumni Association, and so many more generous supporters who helped us surpass our original fundraising goal of $5.5M. Thank you so much!
