February 17, 2017

Thompson Rivers University has received two major anonymous gifts totaling $2.5M. The first donation came in the form of a $1M contribution that will provide student scholarships and bursaries across all faculties. A second gift for $1.5M is earmarked for the naming rights to TRU's future Nursing and Population Health Building. “This community continues to amaze me. The people of Kamloops rise up and empower our students and our university, creating personal opportunity and stunning new facilities,” said VP Advancement, Christopher Seguin. “This city has some of the most caring and generous donors in Western Canada, and their continued support lets TRU grow and evolve.” Both donations were announced at the university’s 25th Foundation Gala celebrations.
