StFX receives $10M for wellness centre revitalization

April 11, 2018

Amelia and Lino Saputo have donated $10M to St Francis Xavier University, reportedly the largest gift in the institution’s 165-year history. According to a news release, the donation will go toward revitalizing the Oland Centre, StFX’s aging health and wellness centre. “StFX’s Oland Centre has been critical for maintaining community health and wellness since it opened in 1967,” stated StFX president Ken MacDonald. “In fact, of all the buildings we have on our campus the Oland Centre sees the highest use, which directly reflects its importance to our region and our communities.” StFX adds that the Oland Centre will be renamed the Amelia and Lino Saputo Centre for Healthy Living in honour of the donation. StFX
