Your support means so much.

Gifts in support of students allow us to provide much needed financial assistance as they pursue their educational goals. Your gift will have an immediate and meaningful impact on a student’s life, allowing many to remain in school and achieve their goals. You even have the option to name your form of support, thereby creating your legacy at VIU, honour a milestone, or remember a loved one. We're here to help you navigate the process.
