Supporting educational pursuits is recognized as a key component to most giving portfolios. The University Fund supports specific research projects at the Universities of Calgary, Alberta and Victoria. These research projects are updated and new universities are added to the list as new opportunities are identified. Currently we are supporting our clients’ research in the areas of Masculinity Studies and Education, Poverty Reduction and Social Policy, Women’s Studies and Social Work. Additionally we support organizations who are working on poverty reduction strategies around RESP savings and financial literacy.
