Every student has a story
You may receive a letter or a call from an SFU student this fall. Please take a moment to reminisce and find out first-hand how much your help means to those who are struggling.
We've heard time and again how the current housing crisis has caused an enormous amount of financial strain. Higher rental costs have resulted in a lack of funds for other essentials such as food, tuition, transportation and textbooks.
"I'm so thankful for the bursary I received. A lot of stress has been alleviated, which allows me to focus on my studies and cherish the time I have with my son," shares SFU student, Brian Misera (pictured right, with son Vincent).
As an alumnus, you understand better than anyone how important it is to stay healthy, positive and focused on school. That's why our students are reaching out to you. Please make a meaningful gift today and change the life of a student in need. 100% of your donation goes directly to student support.
