Dean Helsey Thumbnail Donor Impact Report
"Know that your generosity helps strengthen the culture of philanthropy and volunteerism in the UBC Sauder Community, and for that I am truly grateful."

Thank you for partnering with us over the past year to help the UBC Sauder School of Business further its mission to develop transformational and responsible business leaders for BC and the world. With the generous investment and involvement of our donors and alumni, you are helping shape the path of a young person’s life as well as the future of business.

The economic and social transformation we are witnessing around the world presents enormous challenges as well as opportunities. Great business schools must foster the talent and ideas that will guide our future well-being.

With your support and through our shared commitment to excellence and innovation in business education, together we help create new knowledge and inspire greater collaboration between the private and public sectors to address some of the key issues facing local and global communities. We also help our students develop the values-based leadership, creativity and entrepreneurial thinking that will drive positive change for decades to come.

Our 2015/16 Donor Impact Report demonstrates the difference your giving makes. This year, we are taking a multi-channel approach to communicate the impact of your support that will include video- and web-based stories we will share with you throughout the year.

In the coming weeks and months, you will learn more about how your contributions enrich the student experience, advance research excellence, and help businesses and communities here and around the globe thrive. For now, in this abbreviated report, I invite you to review some key results of the past year.

On behalf of everyone at the school, thank you for taking the opportunity to work with us to make a positive difference. Know that your generosity helps strengthen the culture of philanthropy and volunteerism in the UBC Sauder community, and for that I am truly grateful.

Thank you,

Robert Helsley
