Campaign Update

Front and Centre
New milestone reached for Front and Centre campaign

Campaign Chair Paul Soubry announced this week an updated fundraising total for Front and Centre. “It seems like yesterday that I took my place at Investors Group Field to announce the Front and Centre campaign” Soubry said, "$500 million... in terms of scale and scope, it was almost unimaginable. But we knew then that the people of this province, and the U of M community, would rise to the challenge."

To continue the campaign’s impact on student success, the university will double every gift made to undergraduate scholarships, and triple every gift made to graduate scholarships before June 30.

Read more about how you can change the life of a student forever as part of the Front and Centre campaign.
