Donation Impact


Your gift to SFU’s Health & Counselling Services Development Fund will make a direct impact in students’ lives. You will be helping someone who might be struggling with anxiety, depression or financial stress—by supporting services that have been proven to make a difference.

We have seen more and more students seeking support post-pandemic. Anxiety and stress are the two most common issues. Due to the demand, waiting times for an appointment are growing. That is why a gift from donors like you can make such a difference. Not only are you helping HCS to provide free counselling, support services and other interventions—you are showing students that they are not alone and there is a community out there that cares for them and wants to help them succeed.

Now, more than ever, it is vitally important that students can receive free and convenient help—wherever they are, whenever they need it. Please give today.
