Briercrest Celebrates the Success of Its First-Ever Giving Day

Posted: June 27, 2024

We are excited to announce that Briercrest's inaugural Giving Day, held on June 20, 2024, was a resounding success!

We set a goal of raising $50,000 dollars and ended the day with a total of  $93,160 in donations. 
Through your efforts and generosity we greatly surpassed our goal!

This unprecedented event marked an important milestone in our nearly 89-year legacy, uniting the entire Briercrest community in a powerful display of generosity and support.

Thanks to your incredible contributions, we have made significant strides this year. Your donations have funded essential capital projects and provided vital scholarships, making a tangible impact on our students and campus. It's clear that the heartfelt giving from Briercrest alumni, parents, students, and friends has truly made a difference.

However, our journey doesn't end here. We need your continued support to ensure that we can sustain the good work God has started here.

Thank you to everyone who participated in making this day a historic success.

This first Briercrest Giving Day has shown the power of collective effort. Your generosity has not only met immediate needs but also set a precedent for future support and growth. Let's continue to build on this momentum and contribute to Briercrest's ongoing success.
