“At TRU, we are fortunate to have so many remarkable donors like those in the President’s Circle, which represents our highest level of giving,” said TRU President and Vice-Chancellor Brett Fairbairn. “They give in a myriad of ways, but no matter how each contributes, they provide students with an opportunity for a life-changing post-secondary education.”

TRU began the President’s Circle in 2010. It was formed to recognize donors’ lifelong contributions to TRU in a more intimate way and to encourage them to maintain a long-term close affiliation with the university.
