What Day of Giving donors said

" At WLDCU we have a long history of supporting the health care needs of our communities and felt this would be a great way to continue our support.. Access to health care in our rural communities has been a challenge for many years. We’ve recognized that and have invested ourselves in being part of the solution and, of course, we’d encourage all members of the business community to do what they can. As a community owned Cooperative Financial Institution, we are committed to improving the communities where our members live, work and play. The donation will make education more affordable for the students that come to study nursing."- Jim Zimmerman, CEO, Williams Lake and District Credit Union

"I believe in the transformational power of education and the impact that TRU has on its students. It's commitment is far-reaching. This support makes a difference to those served by TRU and opens the doors wider for more individuals to walk through in the pursuit of their dreams."- Jeff Sodowsky

"He taught the students in their labs, and they gave him their respect in the end. TRU (UCC '2000) was foundational in preparing me for my Veterinary Career. Animals are in continual need of care, so helping Veterinary Technology students achieve their goals towards graduation and beyond, regenerates the cycle which ensures loving (animal) healthcare professionals will be there to provide for the future."- James Sudhoff

"I feel that not only is it important to support students financially, it is also important that they are provided with the tools and resources necessary to assist them with their studies."- Karen Mulhern (2022)

"I believe we should all support our TRU Foundation as it does a lot for the Students of TRU and our Local Community. I'm proud of our University and all that it stands for. Way to go!"- Anthony Muzzillo (2022)

"There is nothing more important than a good education and TRU is a great facility to accommodate most any choice today."- John Shephard

"The Williams Lake campus caters to those in remote and rural communities who may otherwise opt out of education beyond high school. More support is needed for both Indigenous and settler students in the Williams Lake area."- Christine Cnossen

"Our son Brett graduated from the RT program. I know first hand the support that the students need to complete this intensive career choice."- Lori De Frias

"I supported TRU students for years as a staff member and love what happens on our Williams Lake campus. As a retiree, I can now give back in a different way."- Anonymous

"Our daughter, Avery, was recruited from Ontario to play for the WVB team. TRU was a great place for her to learn in a safe and caring environment, to make and play along lifelong friends, and grow into the person she is today. Without this opportunity, she would not be on her pathway to medicine. This is our way of giving back."- Stephen Pottle

"Everyday I see the challenges students face and what a difference support, no matter how small, can make!"- Anonymous

"I am happy to support nursing. I've been under the care of some of TRU's nursing graduates and was impressed with their skill and professionalism."- Gary Major
