Campaign for Students

The Campaign for Students is Seneca’s annual employee fundraising initiative. A heartfelt thank you to everyone who has made a donation over the years in support of Seneca students.

The 2017 edition of the Campaign runs from Wednesday, Feb. 1 to Monday, March 20. This is also a very special year for all Seneca employees, as we celebrate 50 years.

Our goal for 2017 is to make it a record year for Campaign for Students and raise $102,000 in employee donations and event revenue. As well, we set a goal to increase donor participation to 352 Seneca employees.

You can choose to direct your donation to the Campaign for Students bursary, the area of greatest need, the student experience fund, the King Campus expansion or the CITE Capital Fund. You can also create your own named award for less than $40 per pay. Learn more about these giving options at Where to Give.

Your Donation Goes Even Further

In celebration of Seneca’s 50th year, thanks to an anonymous donor, all first-time donors to Seneca who donate $50 or more will receive a contribution match. That means every dollar you donate becomes two. Now is the time to have an even bigger impact in the lives of our students.

In addition, any existing payroll donors who increase their gift by a minimum of $5 per pay will receive one full year of matching on the TOTAL new gift amount!

There is $25,000 of matching available so let’s maximize our impact!

Giving is easy, and can be done securely online. To discuss your giving options, email Shannon Gaskell or call ext. 77771.

Every student counts. And so does every dollar. Join us and celebrate 50 years of Seneca pride by giving to the 2017 Campaign for Students.

Together, we can ensure that no student has to leave Seneca for financial reasons.
