The University of Windsor’s Place of Promise fundraising campaign has been launched with a new, dedicated website — PlaceofPromise.ca.

The new website outlines the University’s priorities for support — Students, Campus, Community and Impact — as well as the goals and initiatives of individual faculties.

President Alan Wildeman announced that fundraising efforts would be recast around the Place of Promise theme in his annual address to the campus community earlier this year.

“We cannot create this place alone … the University of Windsor will always be the creation of the people who work and study here, our community, our alumni and friends, our governments,” said Dr. Wildeman.

“Whether gifts are made for the support of students, for the campus learning environment, for our community integration, or for helping our research have greater impact, they all contribute to helping promise be fulfilled. Place of Promise is an opportunity to unify the reason to give with the call to give.”

The Place of Promise campaign also has as one of its central themes the celebration of champions — particularly alumni and friends of the University of Windsor who continue to contribute and who remain strong voices when it comes to why the University has meant so much to them.

Place of Promise will be a public campaign and, in addition to PlaceofPromise.ca, there will be new themed material used by major gift officers and staff in Alumni Affairs and Donor Communications.

The Place of Promise campaign will run until Spring Convocation at the end of May 2018.
