Meet our SAIT Giving Day matching donor
RGO Products Ltd. is the generous company behind SAIT's first Giving Day.
RGO has committed $25,000 to match donations from alumni, staff, students and friends over 24 hours, until 7 am Tuesday, Oct. 31. The Calgary-based company that provides office furniture, office technology, installations and office move management, was founded in 1966 by businessman and philanthropist Ross Glen. He and his colleagues have a long history of supporting good causes in Calgary including education, the arts, healthcare and the homeless.
RGO's support of SAIT began with a gift of $80 in 1991 toward the restoration of Heritage Hall, and has grown to nearly $500,000 with contributions to the President's Urgency Fund and the SAIT Opportunities Fund.
"It is wonderful to have our long-time partner RGO Products as our matching donor," says Heather Magotiaux, SAIT's Vice President External Relations. "Our Giving Day is as much about raising money for student initiatives, as it is about promoting a culture of philanthropy within our SAIT community and the community at large - there is no better leader or example of that than RGO."
