Philanthropy is quite literally the love of humanity, and at UVic we embrace this as part of our culture, encouraging faculty and students to give back to the community—local and beyond.

In 2012 the Government of Canada decreed that Nov. 15 would be known as National Philanthropy Day. It is a day set aside to honour "all Canadians who demonstrate the spirit of giving.”

We would like to acknowledge all of those members of our UVic community who live the culture of philanthropy and strive to make the world a better place.
