Université Laval launches $350 M fundraiser

March 14, 2016

Université Laval has launched a $350 M fundraiser, the largest in the institution’s history. The $350 M figure was chosen to celebrate the school’s 350 years of history. Rather than supporting one major project, the funds will reportedly be used to support the school’s general mission and to attract repeat donors moving forward. uLaval Rector Denis Brière said that he hoped the campaign would appeal to the school’s more than 280,000 alumni. "If we can change the culture of philanthropy,” he added, “it will really help us in the long term." The campaign is scheduled to end in May 2017. La presse | Journal de Quebec
