Community Campaign 2019-20

I’m grateful for this opportunity to tell you how much it means to me and my peers that donors generously provide assistance for Concordia students through the Community Campaign. We benefit in so many ways – directly and indirectly. Donations to financial aid and awards relieve financial stress and reward dedicated academic effort.

We regularly use resources that your contributions help build and sustain, like our bright and well-equipped library, recently renovated in 2017. It’s the ideal place to study, in groups or independently. Being mindful of the physical and mental benefits of regular exercise, recreation and athletics facilities helps us develop resilience and a determination to overcome any obstacles, athletic and otherwise.

I chose Concordia for its great reputation, amazing teachers, cutting-edge facilities and labs, hands-on learning experiences, and curriculum design. It’s exciting to have so many opportunities, and I am grateful to every single donor whose actions and generosity have helped provide the resources that I and my peers depend on.
— Rami Noueir, second year mechanical engineering student, Co-op participant and president of the Garnet Key Society.

As an engineering student, I personally rely heavily on laboratory facilities, allowing me to push the boundaries of hands-on experience, which I believe will be invaluable when carving out my career.

This is my second year in the mechanical engineering program and I will be going on my first internship as a participant in Concordia’s renowned Co-op program, giving me valuable hands-on experience in the aerospace industry while I work towards my degree.

Also this year, I am proud to serve as the president of the 62nd Garnet Key Society — Concordia’s honour society that encourages community involvement within and beyond the university.

Last year, nearly 10,000 donors gave to the Community Campaign. I wish I could thank them all personally. What I can do is ask you, with gratitude and respect, to consider giving generously this year.

Without Community Campaign donors, nearly $2 million would disappear from Concordia programs and facilities. This is why your participation matters so much.

Please join this year’s Community Campaign support network, and give generously today.
