Message from the President
Thank you for your support of the University of Saskatchewan. As a donor, you make a difference every day at the U of S, and because of you, 2012 was a remarkable year of diverse donations.
In this report, you will read about just a few of the ways in which donors like you have made an impact this past year. From the momentous, like the $35-million investment from PotashCorp that established the Global Institute for Food Security in December, to the combined impact of over 5,600 alumni supporting student scholarships, equipment and library resources through the Annual Campaign for Students, you have shown that you believe in the power of education and research, and your support is helping us accomplish great things.
Together, donors contributed an astounding $28 million in 2012 towards initiatives that support our students, researchers and facilities. Gifts of all sizes allow us to welcome students from home and around the globe, provide them with exceptional learning opportunities and resources, and inspire collaboration and innovation in scientific discovery. Thanks to your contributions, our influence stretches all the way from our football field to our agricultural fields, to nursing classrooms in Saskatchewan’s northern communities, and to research symposiums throughout North America and beyond. We truly value your incredible support.
We want you to be proud of the impact that your gifts have made at the U of S, and we strive to keep you informed on how your donations make the University of Saskatchewan one of the leading sources of knowledge, discovery and opportunity in our country. After you read these inspiring stories of generosity, we would love to hear from you. I encourage you to visit usask.ca/reporttodonors and give us your feedback about this report.
