A Giving Community
The stories in this year's Giving Report are truly an inspiration!
Let me borrow from Michael Gibbens’ story:
“The more you know about the world… the better choices you can make about what you want to do… The more you see, the more you learn, the richer your life is.”
This quote encapsulates for me the purpose of a university: the learning that opens opportunities and provides choices; the choices that make for a full and rewarding life.
And it truly does take a community to make it happen.
Certainly, the campus community — the students, faculty, and staff — are central to a university. But this centre rests on the shoulders of those who are the extended community of donors, volunteers, alumni, and friends.
Whether you support Mount Allison as a volunteer or a donor, by mentoring or bringing newcomers to the University, whether your giving stretches over a lifetime or you are just getting started, you are an essential part of this University.
We could not be Mount A without you.
With heartfelt appreciation,
