Day of Giving raised $50K for students, programs – TRU Newsroom

WolfPack men’s soccer athletes helped promote Day of Giving on Nov. 5

72 donors. $50,390 raised. 140 percent of goal reached!

All in, TRU’s Day of Giving raised $50,390 in November, surpassing the goal to raise $36,000 in 36 hours. Donors—including alumni, long-time supporters and new contributors—chose from a variety of funds to make their donation during the fundraiser, held Nov. 5 and 6.

The fourth annual event kicked off differently this year, but still garnered community support. Despite cancelling the TRU Foundation Breakfast, which typically launches the Day of Giving, organizers were blown away by the generosity and expressed gratitude for the giving community of the Thompson-Nicola.  

“The pandemic has affected so many people; we knew going into it that some folks weren’t going to be able to give. We just thought if we could get the message out to those fortunate, that were in a position to donate, we wanted them to know that we’re working to support as many students as we could during this time,” Diana Major, director of development for Annual Giving, told the TRU Omega.

Donors gave generously to various bursaries and scholarships across the university; WolfPack 50, which funds awards for student-athletes; Women in Trades programming; Indigenous Education Bursaries; and more. All donations contributed to TRU’s Limitless campaign to raise $50 million.
