Giving Day

UCalgary Giving Day

Supporting trainees - You make it happen 

Aria in the lab

Giving Day is April 18

You don’t have to work in a lab to advance research breakthroughs or be on campus to help students succeed — your gift makes it happen. 

Donors like you drive extraordinary change in the community and beyond, supporting the students who will go on to shape our world and conduct the research that will save and improve lives.

EDUCation And Training Excellence (EDUCATE) Program

The McCaig Institute for Bone and Joint Health is home to the next generation of leaders, scientists, innovators and community-builders. Your generous support this upcoming Giving Day will help them reach new heights, elevating our campus and our community. 

New this year: your gift could have triple the impact. Thanks to an anonymous donor, your gift to our EDUCATE program fund can have triple the impact! All gifts to the McCaig Institute's EDUCATE Program, up to $2,500 per gift, will be matched twice – but only while matching funds last.

Triple your impact

Receiving an award not only provides monetary motivation, but it also recognizes our hard work, and inspires us to elevate further. It's not just about the financial support, but about the aspiration to continually do better.

By making this donation, you're expressing value for our work in contributing to evidence-based medicine. It's more than financial support; it's an affirmation of the vital research we do.
