With your help
Thank you for your support. Your generosity helps us to inspire youth to make SAIT their first choice. Donors like you help us give them an applied education that results in jobs, innovative opportunities and long-term rewarding careers.
Your commitment to SAIT helps students benefit from hands-on learning in unique labs and classrooms, participate in applied research on campus with industry partners, and in many programs, experience workplace practicums that enable them to apply their learning to meet current industry needs.
We’re celebrating your invaluable support by taking a look back at some stories that illustrate how your gifts to SAIT have contributed to student success during the past year.
