Give to YOUR UVic

Ways to give

At the University of Victoria, we find inspiration in the power of possibility. Our potential to solve the world’s biggest challenges, especially in light of the pandemic, is very real. However to find solutions, we must first acknowledge our obstacles and then take action to overcome them.

The UVic community is your community. This is your UVic and your gift will make a difference today.

UVic students have courageously enrolled in a new academic year. Researchers have renewed their dedication to pursue positive social change through community-engaged partnerships. Faculty and staff have rapidly adapted to deliver our vision and mission.

You have the unique opportunity to join them with optimism to build a stronger community through the positive action of making a donation.
