Support Germanic & Slavic Studies

Gifts from alumni, emeriti and friends of the department help us continue to grow and succeed.

We welcome and appreciate gifts of all sizes – the collective support of our many generous friends provides the margin of excellence that will distinguish our teaching and research.

And because every gift – regardless of its size or type – supports our mission of educating the next generation, you are investing in the future. For that, we are very grateful.

Donations for scholarships and bursaries are what make education possible for countless students – without donor support many students would never have the opportunity to reach their full potential. An award is a powerful motivator that builds confidence and encourages students to strive to do their best.

Your philanthropic support empowers our students to pursue their passions and enables our academics to create more opportunities for interdisciplinary studies to prepare engaged citizens for a global society.

Donate online or contact Nicole Pointon, Development Officer for the Faculty of Humanities, at or 250-853-3893, to discuss what you’d like to achieve with your giving.
