Laurier donors help to make the Laurier you love possible.
That was the message relayed the week of March 21 as hundreds of tags were posted across Wilfrid Laurier University’s Waterloo and Brantford campuses. These tags were placed around campus to showcase and recognize the many areas at Laurier that are enhanced or expanded thanks to philanthropic investments. While not all of the items provided through donations are tagged, every tag highlights the many ways in which donations and philanthropy positively impact the university and the Laurier student experience.
Spearheaded by Laurier’s Student Alumni Association (SAA) volunteers, this celebration of philanthropy aims to build awareness within the Laurier community about the exceptional community of donors that backs every Laurier student.
“Tag Day gives Laurier students a chance to say thanks,” said Chris Chung, president of Waterloo’s SAA. “Thank you, to every alumnus, staff, faculty, student, parent or friend who donates to Laurier. Thank you for investing in my potential and my future. Your support ensures Laurier students make it to graduation day equipped with the skills and knowledge needed to thrive.”
At interactive events hosted by Laurier SAA in Waterloo and Brantford, students were encouraged to say “thanks” to the community of donors who make the Laurier they love possible.
“Thanks to thousands of Laurier donors who donate millions of dollars every year, my Laurier experience is second to none,” said Edrianne Crisostomo, the president of Brantford’s SAA. “I’m honoured to have had the chance to share with other Golden Hawks the incredible difference that all Laurier donors are making to our Laurier days.”
In a time of increasing financial challenges, donations to Laurier are even more important. Join us in celebrating our donors for their leadership and their investment in Laurier.
