Home Donors Ways to Give Annual Giving

Annual Giving

SAIT donors provide critical support to our students. Every gift, large or small, has an impact — your investment is changing lives. Funds raised through SAIT's Annual Giving program go directly to areas, such as:

SAIT Summer CampsSAIT Summer Camps in Calgary, Alberta

We believe in lifelong learning that begins in elementary school. That's why SAIT offers over 100 different summer camp options for students in grades 1 through 12 that range from television and radio production to baking, welding and sciences. The SAIT Summer Camps Bursary Endowment allows families facing financial hardship to send their child to a SAIT summer camp, which includes a week-long camp experience and lunch program. This unique SAIT experience helps kids and youth explore careers and gain new skills through hands-on learning. Your support ensures vulnerable kids and youth have opportunities to discover their passion and potential. 

Two-for-one matching gift
For every $10 raised, an anonymous donor will give $5, to a maximum of $400,000. Our goal is to send 100 kids to SAIT summer camps through the SAIT Summer Camps Bursary Endowment.

For more information about the SAIT Summer Camps Bursary Endowment, please email Kathy.Bhana@sait.ca or call 403.774.5214.

Student Awards

SAIT has a long and proud tradition of providing scholarships to students to recognize academic achievement and to reduce obstacles to student success. Over $5 million in student awards are given to students each year.

Investments made by individual alumni and friends, associations, businesses, foundations and other organizations have helped countless students who otherwise may not have been able to attend SAIT. Our student awards are funded on an annual basis as well as from professionally managed endowments. 

If you wish to donate to an existing award, you can  give online now. Select "Other" from the menu and enter the award's name in the text box next to "Tell us how to direct your gift."

Student Crowdfunding

Have a direct impact on the incredible work our students are doing by supporting one of our student-led crowdfunding campaigns. Our Raise it Red crowdfunding site features current student projects that are looking for your support.

Student fundraising activities range from capstone projects, study abroad opportunities, conference or competition participation, or student club activities that have an academic impact. Some of the past crowdfunding projects include the Great Northern Concrete Togoggan team, the ISA International Student Games, Enactus Student Club National Competition and the SAE Baja Buggy team.

Your contributions to crowdfunding campaigns go towards costs not covered by traditional funding sources and often provide opportunities for students that they would not otherwise be able to afford.

Your support helps connect people to projects and unleashes innovation!

For more information on Raise it Red, please email Kathy.Bhana@sait.ca or call 403.284.7089.

Student Success Fund

Student success is more than what happens in the classroom. It's ensuring our students have access to world-class facilities and technology. It's ensuring that we are supporting their mental health as well as their academic development, and it's supporting experiential learning opportunities through activities such as student clubs.

Your gift to the Student Success Fund will ensure our students have all the support they need as they embark on their academic journeys.

This fund provides critical support to areas that may not be funded through traditional sources — with a focus on campus life initiatives or out-of-classroom areas.

For more information, please email Kathy.Bhana@sait.ca or call 403.284.7089.
