The 30-Day Triple Your Gift Challenge


You can triple your impact! If you give to the U of A before March 31, our partners, EPCOR and ION Print Solutions, will both match your donation, up to $50,000 each, with their dollars supporting students across campus.

Give to the cause you care about most — whether you’re a champion of scientific research or a supporter of student scholarships — and know that your dollars are going three times further. 

By joining the challenge, you’ll support students like Delaney Lothian, ’20 BSc(Spec), who turned to the U of A’s First Peoples’ House for help during her undergraduate degree in computing science. First Peoples’ House empowers Indigenous students to achieve personal and academic growth, and Delaney found a listening ear, cultural support and funds to hire a tutor.

“For families like mine, there’s not a long history of attending university — so supports like First Peoples’ House are vital,” she says.

Today, Delaney is pursuing her master of science at the U of A, working on technology that teaches Indigenous languages. Remembering the support she had, she now lends her experience to other students as a tutor through First Peoples’ House.

When you give this month, you’re supporting people like Delaney — the students of today who will bring their intellect, creativity and hope to the challenges of tomorrow.


How it works:

  1. Give to the cause you care about most at the U of A by March 31st
  2. EPCOR will match your donation, with their dollars supporting Indigenous students through the Transition Year Program at First Peoples’ House
  3. ION Print Solutions will match your donation, with their dollars supporting students through the University Fund

“EPCOR is a strong supporter of the Transition Year Program, providing first-year Indigenous students with the academic, social and cultural supports needed to ease the adjustment to university. TYP allows students to take full-time courses toward the goal of transferring into a degree program,” says Stuart Lee, President and CEO of EPCOR.

“EPCOR believes in supporting initiatives that set students up for success for their entire educational journey. Now, you can join us on that mission.”

“We want to give the next generation of innovators and problem-solvers a boost — and we know that the U of A community joins us in doing the same. When you give to the U of A, we'll make a matching donation that helps students succeed. It’s both a gift and a challenge — one we are confident that U of A supporters will rise to meet.” — Craig McEwen, President, ION Print Solutions
