Dear fellow Queen’s students,
My name is Annalisa, the Director of Giving for the Queen’s Student Alumni Association (QSAA). Before taking on this role, I was unaware of the impact that donations have on the Queen’s community. Through QSAA, I have been able to see this impact first hand.
Many of the donors who give to Queen’s are alumni and friends. Their donations work towards making our experience here so much better. Though you may not know it, we as students also have the ability to make a positive impact on the Queen’s community through donations.
Each year, QSAA chooses an area to support as part of our philanthropic education campaign: the Tricolour Giving Initiative. This year, the Tricolour Giving Initiative is focused on providing financial support to students beginning or continuing their education at Queen’s. We have decided to support the Students for Students (SFS) campaign. SFS is a student run organization that aims to help students that have been impacted by OSAP cuts through a General Bursary Fund.
We chose SFS because we believe that access to education is important and that Queen’s students can change the world if provided the chance. Please consider giving to this fund to support the thousands of Queen’s students who rely on OSAP.
