Donor pledges $1M to UBC Centre for Excellence in Indigenous Health if matched by others

September 7, 2021
A founding donor of the University of British Columbia’s Centre for Excellence in Indigenous Health has pledged to donate an additional $1M to support the centre if matched by others. The funding would be used to continue the Centre’s growth through expanding programs, creating new programs, and increasing Indigenous enrolment in health career paths. “Donors to the Centre for Excellence in Indigenous Health at UBC have been absolutely monumental,” said Centre co-director Dr Nadine Caron. “Through their generosity, donors demonstrate there is passion and compassion outside the walls of UBC, so more students, faculty and staff can come to the Centre to bridge the gap between where Indigenous people are now and where we can be.” UBC (BC)
