Faculty of Arts

Your Giving Day gift supports social sciences, humanities and fine arts

Your UCalgary is for the arts

The Faculty of Arts is a dynamic hub of creativity, a vibrant interdisciplinary centre, and home to future leaders who will shape and elevate Alberta, Canada and the world.

It’s just one way UCalgary is making a difference — and your Giving Day gift will take us even further.

UCalgary Giving Day is April 22. Join us in creating an exciting, dynamic tomorrow by making a gift today. Whether you give to student awards, critical research or to any one of our impactful funds this Giving Day, your support will make extraordinary things happen — for University of Calgary students, researchers and the community at large.

Expanding Sikh Studies fund

The Faculty of Arts in collaboration with the Sikh community in Alberta is working toward a long-term plan to support the ongoing development and expansion of Sikh Studies at the University of Calgary.

Calgary Institute for the Humanities funds

Support emerging scholars, advocate for underrepresented communities, and engage in challenging discussions alongside our communities. Thanks to a generous donor, all Giving Day donations to the Calgary Institute for the Humanities (CIH) will have an opportunity to be matched not only once, but twice. 

Faculty of Arts Impact Fund

Gifts to the Faculty of Arts Impact Fund will support priority projects, foster the pursuit of knowledge and innovative research, and enhance the performing, literary and visual arts programming we offer.

Canadian Muslims for Peace and Justice (CMPJ) Scholarship

Support undergraduate students in the Faculty of Arts studying issues related to increasing understanding about the Canadian Muslim perspective on peace and justice and Canadian public affairs important to the Muslim community.

Michael Brendan Fischer-Summers Kindness Award

Brenda Fischer established the Michael Brendan Fischer-Summers Kindness Award to honour her son Michael and encourage the qualities he possessed in others — kindness, compassion for others and a desire to make the world a better place.

Canadian Space Health Research Fund

The University of Calgary has emerged as a leading force in national space health research with the formation of the Canadian Space Health Research Network (CSHRNet), an initiative established thanks in a large part to a generous donation from an anonymous Calgarian.
