Donors and champions empower students on Giving Tuesday

Friday, December 1, 2023

The Waterloo Engineering community rallied for Giving Tuesday on Nov. 28 to support two funds that empower students with the means to pursue their academic ambitions and prepare for professional success.  

In total, 183 donors supported the Waterloo Engineering funds with $61,230 in donations. 

95 donors supported the Engineering Student Teams Fund with a total of $28,460 in donations. 

88 donors supported The Equity Fund with a total of $32,770 in donations. 

The impact of these donations was amplified by special pledges. By securing over 60 donors per fund, each fund received a bonus donation of $5,000 from our challenge champions Dr. Mary Wells, dean of Waterloo Engineering, and Terry Weldon, a retired lab technician and instructor from the Faculty’s electrical and computer engineering department.
