We honour and recognize donors for their continued support of SAIT and its students, and in turn, have formed two different giving societies.
The President's Giving Circle
The President's Giving Circle is a distinguished donor group that recognizes contributions of $1,000 or more annually in support of SAIT and its students. Circle members invest in SAIT in a variety of areas including:
- Student Awards
- I.G. Lewis Student Emergency Fund
- SAIT Opportunities Fund
Gifts provide students with the best-applied education possible — and SAIT graduates are using that education to make innovative contributions to business and industry. The President's Giving Circle is our way of acknowledging the generosity and long-term commitment of donors to SAIT students.
Your leadership is helping SAIT move from the growth of our award-winning infrastructure to the growth of the student body.
You can make a difference
Support from the President's Giving Circle members has changed lives and improved learning through funding initiatives such as:
- Accessibility on campus for physically challenged students and staff
- Peer Assistance and Leadership program
- Student counselling
- Ongoing professional development for instructors resulting in innovative teaching methods and relevant curricula
- Specially equipped, computer-powered study rooms fostering student collaboration
- Portable, online and simulated education tools, providing real-workplace and safe hands-on learning
- Essential emergency funding for students in times of crisis so they don't drop out of school
- $4 million in scholarships and bursaries available to more than 3,700 students.
Heritage Hall Society
The Heritage Hall Society forms a unique community of alumni, employees, volunteers and partners, people who have contributed so much to the history of SAIT, and people who share a common goal for the future — ensuring SAIT will continue to change students' lives and lead the way in applied education.
SAIT is deeply grateful to our legacy donors — generous individuals who have chosen to make a gift to SAIT through an estate plan. In recognition of your vision and kindness, all legacy donors are invited to join the Heritage Hall Society. We celebrate and honour the generosity of our members — publicly or quietly, at your discretion — with special events, publications and other initiatives.
