The TRU Foundation Gala is a flagship celebration and the university’s most successful fundraising event of the year. In its 25-year history, Gala has raised more than $1 million for student scholarships, bursaries and awards. This year’s Gala theme is “A Community Affair” in the spirit of hope and coming together. We are thrilled to raise funds for students while also partnering in new ways with many businesses that have supported TRU students over the years. The pandemic has taken a toll on many, but our community has always been in this together.

Show your support by joining us on Feb. 6, 2021 as we welcome more than 450 guests for a virtual evening of food, entertainment and comradery. Help us celebrate the strength of our community while giving back in the name of education for all.

This year’s event structure enables more guests than ever before to attend. With two ticket options, we are excited at the opportunity to welcome new members of our community to join in the excitement of the TRU Foundation Gala. The online auction portal is accessible to thousands this year and will allow our fundraising to be Limitless.

This event raises more than $60,000 for the Foundation’s fundraising efforts in support of student scholarships, bursaries and awards. With student needs for assistance increasing, we are hoping to raise over $80,000 this year. We welcome you to be a part of this innovative celebration.

Order Deadline: Monday, Feb. 1, 2021 at 10 a.m.
